• DUWA Cebu Children's Festival Takes Kids on Wild and Wonderful Experiences

      Give your kids an experience of a lifetime at DUWA Cebu Children's Festival, where young minds can harness their innate curiosity and creativity and push the boundaries of what they can be!


      Happening on August 13-14 and 20-21 at Oakridge Business Park, this exciting weekend activity guarantees fun-filled days to keep the little ones happy and occupied.

      "DUWA Cebu Children's Festival recognizes that it is through play that children first grasp the world around them. By providing weird, wild, and wonderful experiences, the Festival hopes to enrich the local landscape with things kids can do," said Allen Tan, one of the organizers.

      With the popularity of the Internet, many children no longer get a chance to play outside their homes and partake in the Filipino games that Lolo and Lola once enjoyed. This time, they can try tubig-tubig, buwan-buwan, jackstone, takyan, bato-lata, and many more for free every 2-3pm on all Festival days.

      "Over the pandemic, children have been cooped up, and it has been limiting their social skills. So we wanted to do something that fosters interaction and enhances their sense of wonder and play," said co-organizer Mark Deutsch.

      They can also broaden their artistic perspectives by watching free performances of the Cebu Centre for Dance Ballet and Sistemang Pilipino and by attending the musical storytelling by Little Boy Productions.

      The more reserved ones may stay at the drawing tables, play sungka, do some origami, or read their favorite story books.

      "Creativity is important; as adults, we see AI replace people in the workplace. However, there's one thing AI can't replicate: creativity. So it's important to immerse children in creative activities and instill the importance of this value," said Mark Anthony Ynoc, Mandaue Business Month Chairperson

      For those who desire to enhance their skills, the Festival has lined up numerous workshops for only P650 per child, per workshop, including a snack pack.

      They can pick among the following activities: Ballet Workshop with Cebu Centre for Dance, Hip Hop Dance with Mr. Quelo, Theatre Workshop with Penelop Ong, Young Inventors Workshop with the University of the Philippines Fabrication Lab, Express Yourself through Watercolor with Marianne Guinto, and Draw Your Heart Out with Little Boy Productions,
