TAGUM CITY- This city is set to go on a two-week revelry as the City Government of Tagum and the Tagum City Tourism Council are all set for the second installment of the city’s Trio Celebration.
The aforesaid trio celebration is comprised of the 2015 Tagum City Musikahan Festivals, the Tagumenyo Bisa’g Asa and the 17th Araw ng Tagum and will run from February 23, 2015 through March 7, 2015.
The celebration, together with its calendar of activities, were adeptly presented during a Press Conference held on February 6, 2015 at the NCCC Mall, Ma-a, Davao City and at the February Edition of the Tagum Biz Talk at Big 8 Hotel on February 10, 2015, by its respective committee chairs: Ms. Marlene R. Alastra for the 2015 Tagum City Musikahan Festivals, Ms. Norma R. Pereyras for the Tagumenyo Bisa’g Asa and Ms. Carmen B. Apura for the 17th Araw ng Tagum.

Specifically highlighted at the two media events was the fledgling Tagumenyo Bisa’g Asa (TBA) which was conceptualized on the premise that the expatriated constituents of the City of Tagum, including the Overseas Filipinos Workers, will have to be recognized by the local government in consideration of their valued support and contribution to the economy of Tagum. The TBA will celebrate its second year after its inception.
It was also stressed that the Tagum City Music Makers Concert is a newly- added event which will be held during the 2015 Musikahan Festivals. The concert will feature all the beneficiaries-graduates of the Tagum City Musical Instrument Workshop Program, which is one of the city’s literacy programs and is currently on its 11th year.
Meanwhile, one of the major events of the 17th Araw ng Tagum is the Tagumpay Awards and Recognition 2015. On this event, the Tagumpay Excellence Award will be presented to any Tagumenyo, either individual or group, who has greatly contributed to the city’s growth, honor and glory through their distinguished and exemplary achievements whereas the Estorya ng Tagumpay Award will be conferred to any Tagumenyo whose story of success has been an inspiration to others and whose contribution to the economy of the city has not only substantially impacted the city and its constituents, but also the people outside of Tagum.
