Ogwashi-Ukwu carnival
« on: June 08, 2018, 07:32:53 PM »

Anthonia Oguah Initiated Ogwashi Ukwu Carnival out of the love for her home town and the desire to create a communal means of coming together in other to achieve peace, unity and love with a view to promote the community image through culture and dance.Undaunted by the many impossibilities associated with staging such a laudable event as at the time of the carnivals creation, she did not allow any forms of discrimination to distract her from the target of making the carnival a dream come true.


the carnival which is the first indigenous community carnival in Delta State Nigeria, is the Brain child and concept of a diligent daughter of Ogwashi-Uku, AnthoniaOguah. She conceived the idea of a Dance Carnival in the year 2010 to help promote, not just the cultural heritage of the people of Ogwashi-Ukwu Kingdom but to sustain the cultural legacy that has existed in the community through  culture  and dance in order to revive the Spirit of Unity and Cooperation among the indigenes

The Carnival is a new concept in entertainment; it is expected to help awaken the spirit of brotherhood in Ogwashi-ukwu if sustained
The carnival started precisely on December 25th, 2010 and was held at the Ani-Nshi sports field Ogwashi-Ukwu. It was attended by both the indigenes of Ogwashi-Ukwu and non-indigene’s, the attendance and overwhelming accolade that greeted the first edition of the Dance Carnival, encouraged the need to use the carnival as a tool to encourage Togetherness and Economic development in the kingdom.

Ogwashi-Ukwu carnival is unique in every way and one of its unique attraction that distinguishes it from other carnivals is the location where it is held which is home to many participants who have applauded the fact that the yearly event will afford them the singular privilege to visit home at least once in a year, with a view to spending the yuletide happily with their old parents, friends and peer mates
