The theme for this year’s festival highlights on the “Year Of Return”, not just for diasporeans but for fellow Voltarians who have for long not visited home to commune. Edemfest is also calling out the Non-Ewe Community to also come to Volta Region and enjoy it’s rich tradition and tourism, amidst other key positive influences.
