Banaue Imbayah Festival
Festivals and Fairs
Imbayah is a celebration of abundance and good harvest held once every three (3) years in Banaue, Ifugao. During the festival, the village people put on their traditional attires. Bright colored skirt (tapis), accessories, and native jewelries adorn the ladies. The chieftain wears their G-string (wanoh), headgears and other paraphernalia such as bolos or spears. Chewing betel nut (moma) is also common among the locals as a form of socialization on big gatherings like this. Ethnic presentations such as songs, dances, arts and games are presented. This projects the true character and the spirit of the Ifugao. Native pigs and chickens are also butchered and an overflowing supply of rice wine from heirloom jars is open for locals and tourists to share.
