Every 12th of July
Held alongside the towns’ Foundation Anniversary, Kalamay, local term for sugar, is San Enrique’s major industry. Social and economic undertaking of the town is centered on agriculture. Known as “The Sugalandia of lloilo,” the town is largely agricultural and ere majority of the population is engaged in sugarcane farming.
As a sign of thanksgiving for the abundant sugar produced and harvested all year round, the festival was created with the much-anticipated tribal dance competition revolving around culture, tradition, lifestyle, and livelihood of its people.
