Silay City is not just the land of wealthy hacienderos, it is also rich in history and heirloom recipes that have withstood the test of time and have become the present generation's pride and legacy.
KAON TA! Silay Food Festival is a two-day celebration held on every Cinco de Noviembre Indepence Day Celebration at Balay Negrense Museum, the heritage house constructed by sugar baron Don Victor Fernandez Gaston. This elegant structure also serves as an iconic heritage marker for the city.
The Festival will happen on November 4-5, 2017 and KAON TA! Restaurants from all over Silay will be putting up booths on the Balay Negrense grounds and serving their most popular dishes.
The best part is when you land at Bacolod-Silay Airport, you're just minutes away from a gastronomic journey showcasing the best of Silay City.
