Mayor Sara Duterte thru the official Facebook page of the Araw ng Davao 2021 celebration said that this year, the city tourism office is preparing for an all-online Araw ng Dabaw celebration following the recommendations of the National Historical Commission. Duterte also invited Dabawenyos to like the Official FB page of the celebration at https://www.facebook.com/Arawngdabawofficial.
On her program over Davao City Disaster Radio, Duterte said, “So I hope that people will like their page and follow their page kay naa didto ang mga events tanan na gi-andam para sa atong Araw ng Dabaw celebration and you can enjoy it in the comforts of your home because you know there is a quarantine and you know there is a stay home order”.
Davao City residents enjoy the previous Araw ng Dabaw celebrations with street parties, big concerts, and events Dabawenyos likened to a “grand fiesta” celebration. This is the first time in its 84th year that people would be staying at home while joining the celebration as the city is still under strict quarantine protocols due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
