One of Ghana’s celebrated event ‘Chale Wote’ Festival is coming up this year but at a different venue.
The 2023 Chale Wote Festival will play host to great many revelers from Ghana and across the world, this time at OSU, a famous street in the capital Accra.
Activities and exhibitions for the festivals will be held on major grounds, including Independence Square and the Osu Castle.
Inside a three-mile range running from the Court Complex to Freedom Square through to the Osu municipality, there will be impressive sights and sounds.
Activities such as photo exhibitions, street painting, graffiti murals, interactive installations, street boxing, movie screenings, and processions of cultures, just to mention a few, will line the streets.
As per the organizer behind the Chale Wote Festival, Mantse Aryeequaye, the new area will give the street carnival a more extensive space to exhibit its rich African legacy.
He made this disclosure at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Multimedia Group, the new media partners for this year’s event.
“We’ve relocated to Osu. From Independence Square all the way into the Osu township, we’re talking about where the High Court Complex is, down to the Independence Square, into the Osu Castle, into the Osu community, all the way down to Oxford Street, and all up to the Osu Cemetery traffic light coming towards Accra Sports Stadium, rounding it back into Independence Square,” he said.
The 13th edition of the Chale Wote Festival is here to grandstand Ghana’s music, dance, and art in general. Besides, it is also an opportunity to show artistic self-expression, and tradition of the country.
This year’s event is slated to take place from Monday, August 21 to August 27, 2023 at 3PM.
