The Odwira Festival is mainly performed by people of Akuapem, Akwamu and sometimes the Akyem. The Odwira celebration begins at the end of the 40-day meditation period by chiefs and elders of the traditional area.
Six weeks to the festival, a ceremony called “Adae” is performed at the Adontenhene’s palace, highlighted by ban on drumming and noise-making, so that the gods can rest while people fortify themselves spiritually and materially for the celebration ahead.
All Adonten stool houses in the towns and villages perform their own ceremonies before coming together for the grand Adontehene Odwira at Aburi-Ankaase.
