Through the years, the Panagbenga festival has steadily become the best avenue where Baguio people can shine and innovate what best depicts their community – with everyone co-owning the festival. The term “Panagbenga” comes from a Kankanaey term meaning “season of blooming,” “a time for blooming.” This festival reflects the history, traditions and values of Baguio and the Cordilleras.

The Panagbenga Festival 2015, also known as the Baguio Flower Festival (BFF) will  surely attracts the most number of tourists both local and foreign. During the five week celebration, different activities are scheduled primarily for the amusement of the visiting public.

The 20th celebration of the Panagbenga festival promises not only the Summer Capital's best but also the best of the neighboring municipalities especially La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba and Tublay.

February 1, 2015 marks the commencement of the Panagbenga Festival filled with dancing and competition.

The highlight of the Panagbenga Festival, the Grand Street Dancing Parade, to be held on February 28, 2015. 

The parade will start at the Panagbenga Park going down Session Road and will take a left turn to Harrison Road until eventually it reaches Athletic Bowl. During the street dancing, the rich and colorful cultures and traditions of the Cordillera will take center stage.
