Mindanao Feast Site Information 2024

Our Feast of Tabernacles and the Eighth Day 2024 for Mindanao, Philippines, will once again be held at Hotel De Susana and Resort in Purok 2, Patag Bagontaas, Valencia City, Bukidnon. Labeled as the highland paradise in the heart of Mindanao, Bukidnon derives its name from the Visayan term "bukid" for "mountain.” It is predominantly a rolling grassland plateau with an average elevation of 915 meters. The rolling uplands, deep canyons, and valleys alternating with low plains create a refreshing vista for dwellers and travelers alike. One of the most striking and impressive features of Bukidnon is its breathtaking mountain landscape, with some areas still covered with forest. However, significant portions are grasslands planted with corn, pineapple, and sugarcane, making the area highly suited to agriculture. Bukidnon is the primary source of agricultural products and raw materials that feed the processing plants in the province and the primary processing centers of Northern Mindanao. Hence, Bukidnon is tagged as the region's "Food Basket.”

The Feast of Tabernacles will start on October 17th, Thursday, and The Eighth Day on October 24th, Thursday. It is best to plan to arrive at the feast site early on Wednesday, October 16, to give enough time for registration and preparation for the Opening Night, orientation & welcome dinner at 7:00 that evening. Please arrange your travel plans accordingly and let us know your schedules so we can coordinate your arrivals.

For guests outside Mindanao who wish to reach the venue themselves, Hotel De Susana and Resort are accessible by plane from Laguindingan Airport via Cagayan de Oro City (150 km) or from Francisco Bangoy International Airport, Davao City (176 km). Find your way to the bus station from these airports and ride a bus bound for Bukidnon. Drop off at Valencia City Bus Terminal. From the bus terminal, ride a motorcycle cab to the resort.
