Holidays & Observances in Cote d’Ivoire

Cote d’Ivoire is a French-speaking West African country. Despite recent civil unrest it remains one of the best economies in the area. The religion of the country is split almost equally between Christianity, Islam, and indigenous beliefs, sometimes in combination with one another. The members of the different religions usually coexist peacefully with one another, so religious holidays are celebrated freely throughout the country. Several festivals occur each year and attract people from other parts of the world.
