Ethiopian “People’s day” Festival

 Ethiopian “People’s day” Festival Dec. 9th is a special day for all Ethiopians; a day in which people representing each ethnic group in the country gather in a chosen host city to celebrate an annual event ‘The People’s Day’. Various cultural shows, photographic exhibitions and a daylong musical concert will be performed by each ethnic group.

There are also trade fairs where indigenous products such as coffee, cultural ornament etc. are displayed.
An interesting part of the event is seeing the different ethnic and tribal groups each wearing its traditional costumes. Especially the lower Omo tribes decorate in a white bark belt and leather strap, ornament with notches, a short skin garment, and paint their bodies with artful designs adorned with jewelries made of bone and all sorts of metals.
