Baguio City in the northern Philippines is popularly known as the country's Summer Capital and also for its annual flower festival dubbed Panagbenga. However, the festival's impacts remain widely unassessed despite the festival's 22 years of celebrations. Studies underpinning the effects of Panagbenga in many aspects are also lacking. This study aims to report assimilated information from stakeholders as a micro-assessment of community-level societal impacts of Panagbenga, especially reviewing crime rates and critical trends over five years. The host community, businesses, tourists, local and national government and the local police, can benefit from this research. The findings in this study can also inform decisions and policies made by agencies and organisations in both the public and private sectors.
