This is the biggest event of the year, established to commemorate the slave trade and encourage people in the African diaspora to come home. It is a time when The Gambia becomes the focus of the region as lots of people subsequently return for a spiritual and emotional homecoming, with towns coming alive with concerts, tribal dancing, food festivals, special markets and cultural events.
Nationwide but especially on the north shore of the River Gambia.
