As the name implies, the festival is centered on the harvesting of rice so it is a harvest festival. It is celebrated at Vane, the Traditional capital of the Avatime people. It is celebrated in the last week of November to December. It attracts a number of tourists. The people of Avatime, who migrated from the Ahanta areas of the Western Region, fought the original people of the area they now occupy, and this is reflected in their drumming, dancing and singing.
