About the Festival Logo

For the first time, a MassKara logo has the theme of the festival in bigger fonts than the words “MassKara Festival”. This is to emphasize that this MassKara celebrates a milestone bigger than the festival—the 80th birthday of the city, Festival Director Eli Tajanlangit said.

The logo shows a MassKara dancer peeking through the first letter O in the word Bacolod. Jarmin said the dancer is wearing a mask with eight colorful feathers representing eight decades of the city, silhouettes of a human figure representing the people of Bacolod behind the masks, a black and white checkered pattern representing one of Bacolod’s landmarks—the public plaza’s checked steps, and a smiling face on the second letter O.

"The Philippines most colorFUL festival"
