Fetu Afahye is an annual festival celebrated by the chiefs and people of Oguaa Traditional Area in the central region of Ghana.
A ban on drumming and all sounds of drums to create a peaceful atmosphere for the gods and the invocation for peaceful transition precedes the festival.
A ban is also imposed on fishing within the ‘Fosu’ lagoon. One other significance is a ban on funerals observance to dislodge any expectant bad omen that may attempt to mar the peaceful observance of purification rites in order to create a congenial atmosphere and support for the ensuing climax of the festival.
The festival is celebrated in the first week of September every year and it is climaxed on Sunday with a thanksgiving church service.
