The Bugum Chugu Fire Festival in Northern Ghana, is one of the most important holidays among people of Dagbon, but is well known also among Gonja, Mamprusi and Nanumba, all living in the Northern part of Ghana. It is celebrated at the beginning of every lunar year and therefore signifies the beginning of the New Year. In Dagbani language, fire festival is called “Bugum Chugu”.
