Tayada sa Plaza – Quezon Park
Tayada sa Plaza is the name of an event which takes place most Sundays afternoon at Quezon Park in Dumaguete. Each week (weather permitting) a school or college performs on the big stage under the theme “Showcasing the Best of Dumaguete”.
The event starts usually between 04:00pm and 05:00 pm in the afternoon. It showcases various talents and skills which are developed at the schools in Dumaguete. The performances of the different groups vary and go from traditional dances to Hip Hop performances or theater dramas and comedy.
Tayada sa Playa is a great family event. The entrance is free of charge and limited seats are available. The event is organized by the Dumaguete Tourism Office.
Tayada Sa Palza – Dancers
The event is very popular with Dumagueteños and a good option to escape the almost weekly Sunday brownout (presented proudly by NORECO II). However, local and especially foreign tourists should not miss the Tayada sa Plaza. Visiting the event gives a good idea into the relaxed life-style of Dumagueteños and why we are called gentle people.
