The Ofala Festival also called Ofala Nnewi, is an annual ceremony practised by the indigenes of Nnewi and Onitsha in Anambra State, South-Western Nigeria. The term ofala (English: the authority of the land) is derived from two Igbo words – ofo (English: authority) and ala (English: land). The festival which is described as the most important surviving traditional ceremony of Nnewi indigenes is celebrated within two days mostly in December and January in honour of the Obi (English: king).
