With the resounding success of the Bacolod Masskara Festival 2010, it is just expected that this year’s edition will be even more bigger, better, more colorful, and more bongga!

Every October Bacolod celebrates the annual Masskara Festival where dancers from various schools and barangays would troop to the city streets and dance to the Latin beat with their faces coveres in smiling masks. Expect a burst of colors as the dancers would wear their intricately designed colorful costume to match with their beautifully crafted masks. The celebration also coincides with the charter anniversary of Bacolod which is celebrated every October 19th.

    hi Eric,

    Thanks for this info. I booked myself and my friends to Bacolod. We have a little problem on hotel and transient house, we haven’t book it yet. Would you recommend a good and affordable place to stay?

  6. Enrico Dee says:


    i styed at the 11st bed and breakfast last yr. ->

    whats good with 11th strret, is that it is right in te heart of the action. walking distance from lacson strip, which is converted into tourism strip every october.

    Circle Inn is new. I have friends who stayed there lst year.
    Planta centro is i think OK too. it is where the masskara streetdance parade starts.

  7. Jay says:

    Thanks, Enrico!!! This is very helpful.. I have not found any sites that gives this kind of info.

  8. patrick says:

    Hi! do you a map for the route of the dance competition, I would like tog et the best view for taking pix, thanks!

  9. eric says:

    every year the streetdance starts at araneta corner lizares street. The groups would normally assemble in front of Bong Bogs Pasalubong Shop up to the Bridge near Gaisano.

    from there they would dance straight to the public plaza.

    take note though that plaza is a limited-access area. u need an ID to shoot there. register with the Masskara Foundation to get your ID last Year ID costs P500 each

  14. Mary Franco says:

    Hi, I’m visiting Bacolod from Oct 18-20th. Will most of the festivities be over by then or will there still be a street parade or something on the 18th or 19th? Or is the closing ceremony just a speech? I really hope not, it’s my birthday! Thanks for any help.

  15. Enrico Dee says:

    all the noise will b over by that time… the highlight is 14-16

  16. hey, you have a very good website, I’m loving it. I really want to go to Bacolod to see Masskara this year. Excited bout the Electric Masskara.

  17. Deng Isais says:

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for the info.
    I’m from Singapore and I can’t wait for this event.
    May I know if you have any updates on the registration for the ID access to shoot during the parade? Is there a website I can go to register?

    Cheers. :)
