Winneba is an old coastal town on the "Gulf of Guinea", located 35 miles west of Accra, the capital city of Ghana. In the early colonial history of Gold Coast, as Ghana was then called, Winneba served as a port town. Vestiges of this colonial past are old warehouses of the Elder Dempster Lines, still to be found on the coastline.
Many a tourist today know Winneba for its annual "Deer Hunt Festival" held in May each year, and its unique "Fancy Dress Contest", backed by Brass Band music, which is held on January 1st each year. By nature, music is the heart of the Efutu people of Winneba, and in the past every scholar of the town was expected at least to know how to play the piano.
