The Panagbenga Festival
, also called The Baguio Flower Festival
, is celebrated in the whole month of February with peak periods during weekends. This is the time when Baguio showcases one of its famous attractions: flowers.
The name Panagbenga, which comes from the Kankanaey term "a season of blossoming, a time for flowering," was suggested by Ike Picpican, an archivist and curator of the Saint Louis University Museum.
The festival features floral and float parades, Mr. and Ms. Baguio Flower Festival, FM Panagbenga Pop Fiesta, Skateboard competition, Dolls of Japan exhibit, and the Cañao dance.
The Baguio Flower Festival Association (BFFA) also sponsors a street dancing parade and band exhibition.
