There are two tribe competitions during the Dinagyang Festival 2011 namely: The Kasadyahan Competition (January 22, 2011) and the Dinagyang Ati Competition (January 23, 2011), which are the main highlights of the weeklong array of festivities. Spaces in the judging areas are limited so if you want to witness the tribe competitions of the Dinagyang Festival, it would be best to buy the tickets early.
