Celebration of the annual Olchotel Belau Fair (OBF) and United Nations Day will be held together on Sunday, October 24, 2021, at Ngatpang State, Koksai area.
The theme of the 2021 Olchotel Belau Fair this year is “A Klaiuerenges a Didellel a Mesisiich el Kelulau”, meaning “listening to one another is the basis of a strong government” and the UN Day is themed “Building Resilience Through Hope” given the backdrop of the current pandemic.
Events to be held will showcase both events themes with nearly all the 16 states participating. There will be a parade of nations representing the UN Day as well as a multitude of activities featuring Palauans dances, songs, foods, games, and others.
This year, the OBF is hosted by Ngatpang State, a tradition established previously to have each State take turns hosting the event. Last year, Ngeremlengui hosted and this year, Ngatpang will be hosting as seen in the program with Governor of Ngatpang and Chief of Ngatpang making the opening remarks.
The event is a whole day event starting at 8 am and closing at 5:30 pm.
