This is the official page of the Osun Osogbo Festival. Osun Osogbo Festival is celebrated annually in August at Osogbo town in Osun State. It is a traditional festival for the cleansing of the city of Osogbo and a cultural reunion of the people with their ancestors and founders of the town. Osun is a river goddess in Yoruba religion which is typically and traditionally associated with water, purity, fertility, love and sensuality.
We bring both local and diaspora audiences together for a period of two weeks filled with different activities to reveal the myth behind Osun Osogbo Groove and its healing powers. Though the festival is being rebranded for wider reach by a new consulting firm, Esquire Global, the traditional rites which herald the festival remains the same.
