Kabkaban Festival is an interesting event celebrated annually by Carcaranons on November 24-25. The festival is done by performing ritual dances that are supposed to drive away bad spirits in the surroundings.

The term ‘kabkaban’ derives from the abundant grass specie that grows in the area called ‘kabkab’, which is used as instrument to drive away bad luck and bad spirits through dance rituals.

The festival presents various resources and traditions of Carcar including its history, arts and locally-produced products.

Carcar is known for its inexpensive but durable shoes, bolos (wide-bladed knives), baskets and cottage industries, among other products being sold both in the Cebu Province and outside it.  Carcaranons are also known for arts and craftsmanship. They produce great wooden furniture products and other interior decors.  These locally-produced products are part of the festival which are being showcase during these two-day celebration and festivity.  Read More:  http://www.cebu-bluewaters.com/kabkaban-festival.html
