Uma, Gamiton; Mag-uuma Atong Day'gon
The acronym literally means "Maximize Crops; Uplift the Farmer". Strategically celebrated during harvest months, the UGMAD Festival is a month long convergence for Tagum's farmers in acknowledgement of their noble contribution of being the backbone of the society.
The festival features the "Pintados y Carrozas de los Carabao"- a parade of decorated carts and painted water buffalos, the Durian Trade Fair, Farmers' Market, Agri Trade Fair, "Farmers' Got Talent", "Farmers' Day Off"- free spa services for farmers, and many more.
