The MassKara Festival is a month-long celebration where thousands of Negrenses, donned in colorful masks, celebrate their resiliency from a crisis that hit Bacolod City in 1980.

There’s the MassKara Village, MassKara by the Sea and the streetdance competition to name a few highlights of the festival.
