Pasigarbo Sa Sugbo is a yearly event which showcases the different festivals of the towns and cities of Cebu. Held every August, the event which is dubbed ‘Festival of Festivals’ concludes the founding anniversary celebrations of the Province of Cebu. This year, the event was held last August 13 at the Cebu International Convention Center in Mandaue City.
