The Binanog Festival is an exhibition of the Lambunaonons deeply rooted culture. The festival centers on the native's binanog dance. The dance replicates the mating ritual of the hawk or banog birds.


The soul and dignified nature of the natives or bukidnons is evident in the calm movement of the arms and various footwork in rhythm to the heartbeat of the gong. The dance depicts courtly pastime and stories that have been handed down from generations.
