The Christmas Village is a nightly holiday event held inside the Prayer Mountain Compound in Brgy. Tamayong in Calinan District, Davao City.
Nestled among the hills surrounding Mt. Apo, the Christmas Village has features and amenities that no other spot in the whole Mindanao Region can offer. These include lighted mansions, giant Christmas trees, the cool fresh mountain air, a variety of Christmas booths built in the tradition of European hamlets, fairytale princesses and many more.
The Christmas Village is a rare and exciting experience for anyone. It is surely a dream come true for those who have been seeking for a real, unique, wholesome and truly joyful experience, not only for himself, but for his whole family.
Situated away from the hustle and bustle and the stress of the city, finding the Christmas Village is like entering a secret land of twinkling lights, good cheer, good food, and great people. It’s a fairytale place full of joyful celebration.
There is a restaurant and coffee shop, live music, a parade of life-sized toys, princesses, and for a grand finale, a 3D Mapping Christmas show.
The nightly event which will open on November 25 and end on January 15, was organized to fund the sustainable livelihood projects of the Prayer Mountain for the indigenous peoples of Tamayong.
An entrance fee is collected for this purpose and to help offset the upkeep and expense of maintaining the Prayer Mountain Compound so that it may continue to be shared to people who want to visit.
