Ojude Oba

The Ojude Oba festival is a cultural and exuberant spectacle of sound, colour and joie de vivre.

The festival, held in the forecourt (the eponymous Ojude Oba) of the monarch, is an annual event celebrating the culture and traditions of the Ijebu people while paying homage to the King, Alaiyeluwa Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Adetona, Ogbagba II, Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland.

The festival is celebrated every year in Ijebu Ode on the third day of the Muslim Eid-el-Kabir. A colourful and spectacular carnival, the festival brings the town to a halt with every focus at the pavilion where the festival proper takes place.
