One of Africa’s most recognized street festivals, Chale Wote Street Festival has been scheduled to hold this year’s edition virtually.
Just like many other programs that have been heavily affected by the global pandemic, the festival will move its celebration to the screens, unlike the merry making feel that has been experienced over the years.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly issued out a statement to make this announcement to the general public to inform them.
“This has become necessary due to the surge in the COVID-19 cases and in compliance with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo’s 26th update on the COVID-19 protocols for people to avoid large gatherings to prevent the spread of the pandemic,” they added in the statement.
However, the organizers of the festival have assured the general public that, the line up programmes for the festival that is set to take place from 13th August- 22nd August 2021 will be broadcasted on virtual platforms like social media and other online channels.
The Chale Wote festival is by far the most sought-after street festival in Ghana. It gives creatives the platform to exhibit their talents and crafts for the festival’s attendees. It is mostly filled with arts and music.
