DUGOY FESTIVAL is a celebration of the Dugoy Spirit or camaraderie between and among various cultures found in the town of Sablayan. It celebrates the harmonious ties of the lowland settlers and the Mangyan tribes. The week-long festival is celebrated with cultural shows, street dancing performances, and other exhibits beginning every January 18. Its celebration coincides with the town fiesta. The highlight of the festivity is the street dancing where as many as 20 groups with 1,000 members participate. The street dancing showcases the different ethno-cultural groups of the Mangyan, as well as those that came from different parts of the Philippines and eventually settled in Sablayan.
