ABOUT

The Olojo Festival is an annual festival held in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. For many around the world, attending the Olojo Festival is a “pilgrimage”. This colorfully, vibrant festival is tied to the Orisa Ogun/the Loa Papa Ogu.  The Olojo Festival is comprised of many events that celebrate this festive occasion. Papa Ogu’s name is one of the forces whose name does not change from one land to the next.  It is important for all practitioners to understand the significance of the Olojo Festival. Papa Ogu is known all over the world for carrying a cutlass, a machete or sable in his hand cutting the way.  In Nigeria the name Oguniana is used to remind all about his coming.

One of which is the annual Colloquium, which is coordinated by Directors of the Obafemi Awolowo University. The Annual Colloquium features an esteemed panel of lecturers with an expansive expertise in African Religion, Culture, and Tradition. Another event includes a large festival with over 10,000 people  in which you will witness an array of performances, dancing, singing, acts of the Orisia and the welcoming of the Ooni. The festival is followed by a sacrifice in which the Ooni and Osogun meet at the (tree). The Osogun, the head of all devotees plays a central role in the Olojo festival as he welcomes to Ooni with the ancient Aare crown".
