Hogbetsotso festival

The Hogbetsotso festival is celebrated by the Chiefs and people of the Anlo traditional area in the Volta region.
It is observed in commemoration of the great exodus of Notsie located in present-day Togo.
During this festive period, friendships are strengthened, disputes are resolved and inter-personal bridges are mended.

Activities of the week-long celebrations include the purification of ceremonial stools and a thorough clean up exercise of the whole town and surrounding villages.
The festival is climaxed with a grand durbar which falls on the first Saturday of November every year.
