Chow Ghana: Ghana’s First Local Food Festival Slated For June 10
Chow Ghana is Ghana’s first local food festival that seeks to showcase the culture of Ghana mainly through traditional food, performances and display of art, culture and dance.
The event is slated for the 10th and 11th June 2017 that’s on a Saturday and Sunday and will be held at Venue Gh, located behind Tullow Oil at Dzorwulu.
Chow Ghana is envisioned to be a household event held annually to attract both locals and expatriates from all walks of life to come and have a feel of the First Ghanaian food festival.
Ghanaians love to defend their food to the death! not to talk of Ghanaian Jollof and the endless rant around their favorite waakye spots, so we thought, why not bring theses favorite traditional meals together, foder creativity and birth happiness through food.

- create excitement and around traditional food Ghanaians have grown up loving,
