Happening from May 25 to 26, the festival will (of course) showcase the sweetest mangoes the Visayas is known for. There will be a Mango Bazaar which will feature the harvest of farmers and mango-based products of entrepreneurs. There’s also the unveiling of the “World’s Biggest Mango Sago,” which will be a first for the province.

“The Cebu Mangoes Festival is a one-of-a-kind celebration here at the Historic Resort City of Lapu-Lapu and this side of Cebu,” says Lapu-Lapu City Tourism Head Hembler Mendoza in a release. “Although the economic progress of the city has gone up by leaps and bounds, agriculture products like mangoes still thrive, and that proves how rich and diverse Cebu’s economic sector really is.”
