The history of MassKara Festival began in 1980 when the villagers in Bacolod were suffering an economic crisis. The main livelihood of people in Bacolod then was sugar cane farming. At that time, the price of sugar was at an all-time low due to the invention of sugar substitutes like fructose corn syrup in the United States.
