The Osun Osogbo Festival, which begins with the Iwopopo, the traditional cleansing of the town, followed three days later by the lighting of the 500-year-old 16-point lamp called ‘Ina Olojumerindinlogun’.
Osun-Osogbo festival is less about merrymaking and more about the mind, heart and divinity of a people bonded by unique culture and history. For culture enthusiasts, the festival is like a pilgrimage and even with the directive from the state, we have enthusiasts from Brazil and USA.
Dancing, singing, praise worshipping, commerce and every other thing was going on at once.
2017 dates to be announced.
