If you’re attending the MAFF 2023, come in hungry because there will be over 100 food merchants and concessionaires attending the festival. You won’t run out of food options in case your companions ask “Saan tayo kakain?”
Maginhawa is no stranger for unique food offerings. I must say it’s like a melting pot of flavors in the North. It’s also one of the places where homegrown restaurants thrive.
Arts. Arts. Arts!
Just like its name, MAFF 2023 is also celebrating the artist community in Maginhawa. Over 100 non-food merchants are also attending which includes arts, books, tattoos, and many more.
Start the day right with stretches and warmups. At 9 AM, you can join Anytime Fitness Maginhawa to dance for an hour with their Zumba session at the event.
In its fourth installment in 2023, Dragdagulan comes back with a Christmas twist. The search for Ms. Dragdagulan Reyna ng Pasko is on!
The queens are showcasing an entertaining show and to jingle bell rock the festival night! So buckle up and catch it on MAFF 2023.
