Bacolaodiat set to return on Jan 19-22


The Bacolaodiat Festival is set to return on January 19-22 after a two-year absence due to the global pandemic, according to a press release from the festival’s organizers.

The Chinese New Year festival, which was conceptualized during the time of former Mayor Evelio Leonardia, will once again feature Chopsticks Alley, which will feature famous Chinese cuisine and a night market.

The event will be held in two locations for the first time, according to organizers, one at the Bacolod City Government Center (BCGC) and the other in Megaworld’s The Upper East.

Aside from from featuring Chinese delicacies, Bacoleños and visitors will also be treated to a variety of Filipino street food favorites.

Bacolaodiat Inc. is accepting slot and booth reservations for those who want to join in the festival until January 13. Organizers will provide tenants with a 10’x 10′ prime tent for P7,000 per tent at BCGC, and P4,500 per tent at The Upper East.

Food trucks and carts are also allowed with a fee of P3,000 per space.

For more inquiries about guidelines and booth reservations, would-be tenants may email or contact Chopsticks Alley coordinators Kristelle Dullan at 0938-908-5936 and Ryann Marie Genit at 0938-985-4665.
