A weeklong festival climaxing on the first Saturday in November, this festival has features a grand durbar of chiefs and is held at Anloga, the traditional home of the Anlo–speaking Ewes. The durbar forms a significant part of the week–long Hogbetsotso festival which commemorates the migration of the Anlo – Ewes from the ancient walled city of Notsie in present day Northern Togo to their present settlement. The festival culminated in drumming and dancing to Husago by walking backwards which they claimed was to elude their enemies who might follow them after they had escaped the tyranny of the wicked King Agorkoli.
