Awori Cultural Festival earlier slated to hold in Lagos between October 26 and 29 has been moved to November 26.
This was made known by the Chairman of the Central Working Committee, Prince Adetinji Femi Fadina.
Fadina solicited sustained support and momentum that the festival has generated over the last few months despite the shift of the day of celebration.
Awori Day Cultural Festival is a day dedicated to the celebration of Awori people and their cultural heritage by the Aworis domiciled in the south western part of the country and across the country as well as the Diaspora.
Supporting the staging of the festival are such bodies as the Awori Welfare Association of Nigeria (AWAN), Advisory Council for Awori Day Festival and Awori Traditional Council. The Olota of Ota and all the traditional rulers of Awori communities are also backing the event just as the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has pledged the commitment of the state government to the event, with the state Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture fully engaging with the festival organisers.
Some of the events outlined for the festival include; Football competition, beauty pageant, youth oratory contest, cultural displays, arts exhibition, dance and music.
