The most awaited festival in Baguio City is near and just today the schedule for the Panagbenga 2018 was released to the public. The Panagbenga 2018 is the 23rd edition of this prestigious festival up north. With the theme “Celebration of Culture and Creativity” we envision the 23rd serving of the Baguio Flower Festival to focus and showcase the creativity and culture of the Cordillera region, especially so that just this 2017 Baguio City was named as one of UNESCO’s Creative City for crafts and folk arts joining the 180 network of creative cities.
