This official Sinulog 2017 schedule of activities was provided by the Sinulog Foundation.

Now that you know the schedule of activities for Sinulog 2017 you can now plan your personal activities ahead of time. Staying updated is the best way to savor every moment of this once a year festival.

For first-timers, expect Cebu City to be “really” crowded especially during the Sinulog Grand Parade. You will see the whole city flooded with people, dancing and marrying everywhere. Expect to have parties everywhere, there will be non-stop music, drinking and just pure fun.

There will be rarely any public transportation available going to the center of the city, or probably even none. Most of the public vehicles are re-routed and people just walk all over the city. There is also a possibility that some mobile networks will have a difficulty in finding a signal. Imagine 6-8 million people crowded all over the heart of the city and most of them use their mobile phones at the same time. The network usually gets busy.

So there you have it! Plan your Sinulog activities ahead. .
