In line with the week-long Araw ng Cateel celebration, the municipality, opened its first ever Food and Music Festival dubbed as Kanyanga, last October 24, 2022 at the Baywalk of Cateel. With food from different vendors, the famed Cateel baywalk was flocked by people from all walks of life and ages, sauntering and looking for food to eat from different vendors. At night time, the place transforms into one party venue as colorful lights illuminate the street and different local bands and DJs entertain the crowd.
The Kanyanga Food and Music Fest was included in the official roster of activities this year, in order to provide opportunities for local vendors to sell their products and for local artists to showcase their talents and skills. Cateeleńos showed an outpouring of overwhelming support as families and friends frequent the area.
The Festival Director of the 119th Araw ng Cateel & Kutoo Festival, and the brainchild of the Kanyanga Food and Music Fest, Rolan F. Emboscado, expressed his thanks to the Municipal Mayor for allowing the activity to push through and to the people of Cateel for supporting it. With its unique vibe and setting, the Kanyanga Food and Music Festival promises to go bigger and grander in the years to come.
