ZOGBEN festival aims to place itself at the heart of quality popular culture, reaching a large African and Beninese audience of all ages and from all backgrounds. This cultural festival which is taking root, gives pride of place to emerging companies and creations.
ZOGBEN festival aims to be the voice of BENIN through its Intangible Cultural Heritage throughout all the countries where it will settle in future editions.
An event of international scope which aims to attract audiences of all generations, and of all social and cultural origins, around a rich, unifying and quality program.
ZOGBEN festival is an event offered as part of a popular education process, made up of human relations with a desire to bring together professional artists, resource people and personalities and residents.
We wish through the ZOGBEN festival to give the local population and tourists who come to our beautiful country the opportunity to attend varied and quality shows.
Our idea is also to highlight the whole of the intangible cultural heritage of BENIN. We will bring art and culture closer to the people who live in BENIN, and beyond borders to move, sing, dance, laugh and make Beninese people smile, but also those who are interested in culture.
ZOGBEN festival is open to everyone and it's free.
A festival that leaves no one by the side of the road! Since its social vocation is to involve the Beninese wherever possible as much as possible and to receive all types of public. The event is aimed at a wide range of audiences: young people, families, disadvantaged groups, retirees, high school students, people with reduced mobility ...
