Benin and the Voodoo Festival


Harry Fisch

The Benin Voodoo festival is, certainly, the most active, passionate, colorful, and biggest of those celebrated in Africa. And the pilgrims do not come only from corners of Benin but from Haiti, Brazil, and other countries around Benin such as Togo.

On this special date thousands of devotees go to Ouidah, the center for the followers of this religion, if for nothing else to receive the blessing from the highest religious representative – the chief Vodun of the city. Far from being anything malignant or dark, the festival and its rituals have become a great and popular party over the years.
