In mid-September to ending-September, the chiefs and people of Asogli State Ho and its environs celebrate their annual yam festival. This is essentially a harvest festival.

It is celebrated to give thanks to God, the lesser gods and ancestors for a bumper harvest. It is an occasion to offer prayers for good health throughout the year and prosperity for all and to foster unity through forgiveness and reconciliation. Cooked yam is sprinkled at the various shrines.

This is done before any human being is allowed to cook and taste the real yam. There is usually a grand durbar of chiefs where the Paramount chief sits in state to receive homage from his sub-chiefs. The festival serves as an annual re-affirmation of allegiance by all chiefs and their subjects in the Asogli State to the Agbogbome stool.
