Ang Sinulog Festival ay isang makulay at masayang pagdiriwang sa Cebu City, Philippines tuwing buwan ng Enero. Ito ay isang pagpupugay sa Santo Niño, na isang imahen ng Batang Hesus na ipinadala sa Pilipinas ng mga Kastila noong ika-16 siglo. Ang salitang "Sinulog" ay nagmula sa salitang Bisaya na "sulog," na nangangahulugang "tulad ng tubig na umaagos." Ito ay isang pagtukoy sa paraan ng pagsayaw ng mga deboto habang dala-dala nila ang imahen ng Santo Niño.
Ang kasaysayan ng Sinulog Festival ay may kaugnayan sa pagdating ng mga Kastila sa Pilipinas at sa unang pagtanggap ng mga katutubong Pilipino sa Kristiyanismo. Ang festival ay nagpapakita ng kultura at pananampalataya ng mga Pilipino sa pamamagitan ng sayaw, musika, at makukulay na kasuotan. Ito ay isa sa pinakapopular na festival sa Pilipinas at patuloy na nagbibigay-pugay sa kasaysayan at pananampalataya ng mga Pilipino.
