Run­ning since 2005 this is the biggest Ghanai­an fest­iv­al in the Dia­spora. With nat­ive block­buster rap­per Sarkod­ie pulling the cre­at­ive strings this year, the stage is set for a cul­tur­al explo­sion. Hos­ted by mar­ket­ing com­pany, Akwaaba in Trent Park, Lon­don, the party will force the cap­it­al to come alive on Sat­urday the 24th of July.

Sup­por­ted by the Ghana High Com­mis­sion UK and Ire­land, the fest­iv­al attracts over 8000 attendees annu­ally and is the biggest Ghanai­an event out­side of Ghana, enti­cing vis­it­ors from all areas of the globe. As well as food and Art Exhib­its there is a large music pres­ence with pre­vi­ous per­formers includ­ing Mr Eazi, Fuse ODG, Maleek Berry, Chip, Kojo Funds, WRETCH 32, Tion Wayne and Sarkod­ie.

This year car­ry­ing out Sarkodie’s vis­ion, the event is accom­pan­ied by rap­pers Yaw Tog, Kofi Jamar, Amerado, and D‑Black; high­life croon­er Kwabena Kwabena, Afro­pop artists S3fa, Cam­idoh, Gyakie, and Mr. Drew. Along­side fash­ion shows, cul­tur­al dan­cers and tra­di­tion­al Ghanai­an food, it has grown since pre­vi­ous years and is “back with a bang”.

Chief Exec­ut­ive Officer Akwaaba UK, Den­nis Tawi­ah gave the assur­ance that his out­fit will ensure a prop­erly planed event with all the needed secur­ity and health require­ments in place espe­cially in such a dif­fi­cult time due to the coronavir­us

He fur­ther stated that “this year, we are com­ing back with a bang and want to focus on a fest­iv­al feel as the theme with more add-ons. Ghana Party in the Park is an oppor­tun­ity to show­case Ghana’s rich cul­tur­al her­it­age and oth­er tra­di­tion­al attrib­utes as well as cre­at­ing the enabling envir­on­ment for all attendees to inter­act, net­work have fun”.

He added that “annu­ally we have thou­sands of pat­rons from across the globe attend­ing the event and we con­tin­ue to deliv­er year after year but this edi­tion we are going to give pat­rons anoth­er mem­or­able and unfor­get­table exper­i­ence.”

Wheth­er its jam­ming to D‑Black or wit­ness­ing the col­our­ful attires of the Dubar of Chiefs Dis­play. Ghana’s party in the park is the per­fect arrange­ment of Ghanai­an her­it­age, desir­able to all audi­ences!
