Abstract: ABSTRACT Festival celebrations in the Eastern Region of Ghana are occasions where people make merry and also exhibit their cultural values. These values are mostly seen through the performing art forms that go on during the celebrations. Though these performing art forms give a lot of education, not much has been researched into. This study sought to identify, describe and discuss the role performing art forms in festivals celebrations. Phenomenology method which is under qualitative research approach was used. In all 45 respondents were sampled for the study using purposive and snowball sampling techniques. The primary data was collected using interviews, observations and opinionnaire. The results showed that performing art forms provide essential knowledge to visitors and community members who attend traditional festivals celebrated in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Some of the knowledge that they acquire are the meaning of some gestures used in dances, tonal variations of poems that are recited and symbolical meanings of libation offered in during the celebration. The study concludes that music, dance and drama which are all within the domain of performing art forms educate a lot of people. Also, it brings out the culture and traditions of the people in the Eastern Region and then unite them.
