Sleem Nation: For a while now, we have been seeing a trending posts on social media about Uniben Festival of Moonlight (Rejuvenated), What is it about? How did it start?
Uniben DOS : Festival of moonlight is The Uniben Annual festival of art and culture. The festival was birthed in 2018, under the administration of the then SUG director of socials, Arigbe Joshua. The first edition held in 2018 and the festival has existed since then. This festival seeks to celebrate the UNIBEN historic cultural heritage, the culture of her students in diversity and seeks to promote peaceful coexistence amongst students regardless of their ethnicity through music, art and entertainment which serves as the binding tool.
Hence the theme of this year’s festival is tagged : ‘’My school, my culture.’’

Uniben DOS : Uniben Festival of Moonlight Rejuvenated is set to bring back the exact festival feel we have missed for a while now. We have lots of activities lined up for both days of the festival.
The traditional extravaganza is going to be an epic one, encompassing all ethnic groups in the university. The Color carnival with a perfect blend of good music and artistic displays.
And lastly, the most to anticipate in this festival is the moonlight concert. This is the grand finale of the event and it will be held at hall 2 car park on the 5th of June. We’ll be having musicals, traditional display, speed painting, award presentations to icons made in Uniben from our theme. There are so many more to this event but I’ll choose to stop here because this story is best experienced than told.
