This is, actually, part of the Provincial and City governments' efforts to promote agri-tourism, of course, supported by the local government units (LGUs), non-government organizations, and private sectors.

This is a great project to showcase our Ubi as Bohol is known to produce the best ubi especially the purple Ubi or what we used to call kinampay. 
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Perhaps, this is one of its kind, if not, among the few of its kind in the country, or even around the world. The festival doesn't showcase streetdancing contingents, but zooms in on the development of ubi products or the entrepreneurial aspect of ubi's (also known as purple yam) existence. Before, you may have known only of ubi jam, but they (officers and members of the Bohol Ubi Center Foundation, Inc. (BUCFI) have expanded to produce ubi powder so you can make ubi jam, ubi pastillas, ubi cake, ubi ice cream, ubi candies, etc. any time of the year since ubi is seasonal.

On the cultural side, the young generation will be able to have a grasp of the traditions involving ubi culture like one would have to do chanting or encantations before he or she plants the tuber. If you drop it, you have to kiss it after picking it up as a sign of respect, so you will not be inflicted with 'gaba' (wrath or misfortune, according to the elders).

For years, the organizers are also sponsoring poster making contests to develop budding visual artists, balak contests to hone amateur public speakers (or would-be politicians, hmm) and balitaw (a traditional song and dance courtship strategy in the olden times) contests, among others, for really talented singers and performers.

In January 2004, I was chair of the committee for the 2nd UBI Festival Queen pageant, a personality (beauty, brains and talent) contest with 12 contestants coming from the different municipalities and Tagbilaran City (like Miss Bohol). Inabanga's Rhiz Nova Tagsip Arenas, the very articulate psychology major of the University of San Carlos, won the admiration of the judges and eventually, the UFQ crown. The UFQ winner is supposed to act as ambassador of goodwill and must be well-versed on information about the ubi so she can help in its promotion. Months after that, in the Sandugo 2004 in July 2004, Rhiz continued her winning streak when she got the Miss Bohol Sandugo 2004 title.

The first Miss UBI Festival Festival Queen was the charming Pinky Gica Beldia - Socias (Tagbilaran City representative) who was a student of Holy Name University in 2000. After January 2004, there has been no UFQ because of lack of funds...

I would like to encourage the Boholanos out there to support this festival, especially those who are very generous financially. You can be sponsors so the major and consolation prizes of the different contests will be increased. Just make sure that you approach the right people, BUCFI, for that matter, so you will be certain the money will be used for the intended purpose. It's just so ironic that we have good project proposals here which are short of financial resources. At times, it happens also that the money goes into the wrong hands... hay, naku! I feel bad mas daghang devil's advocates karong panahona, then nagkahilis na ang mga tinuod nga tarong nga mga tawo - kung dili ingnon og nag-alig alig if only for the success of an activity, gama-gamaan lang pod og wa'y hinungdan na storya just to besmirch the credibility... more often, those people na wala'y know-how are the ones na yakkity-yak all the time - all because of ENVY. What can't we be happy that other people are sharing their time, talent, money, intelligence and efforts for the good of the greatest number? Why do we let crab mentality prevail? Whatever happened to the good old Filipino values? Pathetic...
