If there was one person who I knew would do justice to this topic, it was Nana Afriyie and guess what, she delivered. I followed her journey on the Heritage Caravan a couple of years ago, so check places to visit on her blog.
I will add two festivals I believe one should not miss in Ghana.
Chalewote Street Art Festival
A gathering of art, music and dance enthusiasts, the Chalewote Street Art Festival produced by Accra [dot] Alt Radio, is held annually in August or September. Stretching from about Enterprise Life on High Street all the way to the lighthouse in James Town, are various forms of art represented, defying stunts and vendors selling wares. There are as many food stalls vending an assortment of local dishes. Each year, a themed Accra [dot] Alt Radio. Be sure to be on the look out for the fashionistas too.
Agbamevorza (Kente Festival)
Home to one of the bigget weaving towns in Ghana, Agotime Kpetoe hosts its Kente festival known as Agbemevorza in between August and October yearly. It draws in a number of weavers who display their weaving talents through a competition and a grand durbar to climax the week long event where a variety of kente designs are displayed and put up for sale. Attendants to the festival also come clad in their beautifully designed kente outfits.
