Sinigayan is a convivial celebration of the Sagaynon heritage by the gentle, joyful and hardworking people of Sagay, Negros Occidental, Philippines. The word is derived from ‘sigay’, the name of a hardy, bright-shelled mollusk that abounds in the sandy shores of Sagay.
The super-abundance of sigay in the coastal waters of the place in the old days betrayed the presence of marine riches that attracted settlers form other parts of Negros and from Cebu. This abundance caused the settlements to prosper into villages then barrios.
