According to history, the Odwira Festival is a celebration for people of Akuapem, Akwamu and sometimes the Akyem.
The celebration begins at the end of the 40-day meditation by chiefs and elders of the traditional area.
A ceremony called “Adae” is performed at the Adontenhene’s palace, using a ban noise making and drumming believed to be a time for the gods to have some peace and quiet to rest as the celebrants get themselves fortified and readied for the real celebration.
All houses in the villages and towns with Adonten stool observe their various ceremonies before finally coming together for the grand Adontene Odwira at Aburi-Ankaase.
