Like the story of The Blind Men and the Elephant, some people may think of Negros Oriental as a province with beautiful natural resources. Others would see Negros Oriental as a provider of manpower for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
companies. Others would see Negros Oriental as a province that has a deep cultural tradition.

All these descriptions may be accurate but they don’t necessarily tell the entire picture.

Negros Oriental is all these and more. Apart from the beauty one may see in the Province’s five cities and 20 towns, there is one time in a year where the beautiful side of Negros Oriental comes out for everyone to enjoy. This is during the Buglasan Festival, which is held every third week of October.

Originally a showcase of native dances and cultural traditions of the province, the Buglasan Festival has evolved to feature food, art, and even Negros Oriental’s outstanding individuals.

The dances and cultural presentations are more than just entertainment. They tell us a story about our Province. The dances tell us how live was back then and how different or similar it is to life today.

Theere are also booths at the Sidlakang Negros Village which showcase the best of what each town or city has to offer. Going to the Buglasan is actually like taking a grand tour arouand Negros Oriental.

We commend the people behind the Buglasan. This festival reminds us that indeed, there is a lot that we can be proud of.
