    About the Masskara Logo

    The logo highlights the smiling mask which depicts the fun and merriment of the festival. The mask has a headdress that represents the bandstand of the Bacolod public plaza, the headdress that represents the bandstand of the Bacolod public plaza, the official site of the Street and Arena Dance competitions. Hidden inside the bandstand is the fašade of the New Government Center, the new seat of the city government of Bacolod that has become another landmark of the city. Beside both side of the mask are illustrations of sugarcane that highlights Negros Occidental as the sugar capital of the country.
    The two hands symbolize the street dancing activities, one of the highlights of the festivity.
    The logo’s text “MassKara 210 Kari Sa Bacolod” is emblazoned prominently below the mask.
    The theme, “Kari sa Bacolod (Come to Bacolod),” captures Bacolod’s invitation to the world to celebrate life with her though music, dance, food, and fun in the MassKara Festival.

    About Masskara Festival

    One of the most famous festivals in the Philippines today, the MassKara Festival in Bacolod City was born 31 years ago.

    Perhaps the happiest festival in the country, it rose from the gloom that enveloped the city in 1980s, a period of tragedy and economic dislocation.


    During this period, the prices of sugar in the world market were at an all-time low. Negrenses, including Bacolenos, were in a crisis as the province only relied in the sugar industry then.
    The depression was further aggravated when passenger vessel Don Juan sank on April 22, where an estimated 700 Negrenses, including prominent families, perished.


    In the midst of these tragic events, the city’s artists, local government and civic groups decided to hold a festival of smiles, because the city at that time was also known as the City of Smiles.
    They reasoned that a festival was also a good opportunity to pull the residents out of the pervasive gloomy atmosphere. The initial festival was therefore, a declaration by the people of the city that no matter how tough and bad the times were, Bacolod City is going to pull through, survive, and in the end, triumph.


    This act of collectively fighting back at life’s troubles is embodied in the MassKara Streetdancing lyrics: Sige lang… sige na! Bacolod bato kita! (It’s okay… it’s alright! No matter what adversity, Bacolod fights on!)


    The festival is held every October and culminates on the the weekend nearest October 19, which is the Charter anniversary of Bacolod.
