In the 1950s, the people of Nso started an annual cultural week festival to celebrate the Nso hero, mother, warrior and founder of Nso land Yaya Ngonso. It is also known that Yaya Ngonso was the first Fon of Nso (A Fon is the head of the traditional government). The cultural Week has since been named the Ngonso Cultural Week and is celebrated annually (Mostly in December).

Despite the political tension in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon, the 2016 Ngonso Cultural Week which started on December 26th and ended on January 2nd, registered a major success as hundreds of tourists in other parts of the world visited Nso to witness the colourful and exciting festival.
