All contests concerning the Sinulog Festival have been canceled this year as Cebu City sees an increase in Covid-19 cases, Mayor Michael Rama announced yesterday.

The Sinulog will instead be a fund-raising activity of sorts for affected persons due to Typhoon Odette.

Rama said there will be no showdown among contingents and dance presentations this year. The Festival Queen, Sinulog Idol and other Sinulog-related events have also been dropped. (

There will only be one physical activity, and that is a mass with a limited number of attendees during the Fiesta Señor day on January 16, according to the mayor.

Other details for this year’s celebration are still being finalized.
