The festival came into existence over 100 years ago when the earliest Muslim converts in Ijebu-ode paid homage to the Awujale of Ijebuland to thank him for granting them the freedom to practice their religion. Today, however, the festival has transcended religious lines and now attracts people of all faiths as well as tourists from within and outside Nigeria. The festival is celebrated on the 3rd day of Eid- al-Adha, which is today.

The event features parades by different age grades (regberegbes), there is also horse-riding done by different families, led by the Balogun. The Balogun is the descendants of Ijebu war heroes who executed wars. The festival  is a very colourful parade and it is celebrated with extreme pomp and pageantry.

Here are some modern Ankara styles that are perfect for the Ojude-Oba.
