The Badagry Festival began its humble beginnings in 1999, as a remembrance for the slave trade era and the significance of the town in the era. In 1999, "Arefo" organized the first Badagry Festival. Since then, Arefo has spent hundreds of hours organizing the festival and has been responsible for transforming it into the festival that we know today.
The Badagry Festival features different acts and performances. These acts and performances include: Liberation Day Celebration, Football Competition (Oba Akran Cup), Arts & Crafts Festival, Nature/Water Sport Activities, Vothun Henwhe Festival, Zangbeto Exotheric Masquerade Festival, Gbenepo Royal Carnival, International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and Its Abolition, Carnival Day and more.
Badagry is a great town for relaxation and new discoveries. Nothing like a historican town with traditional means of living and strong religious virtues.
