There are five paramouncies in the District. These are Ajumako, Denkyira, Essiam, Enyan Abaasa and Enyan Maim. iThe main cultural festival is the Akwambo that is celebrated yearly between the months of August and September. Durbars of chiefs and the people are organised to raise funds for community initiated development programmes. Emigrant natives come home and participate actively in these festivals.
Ethnically, the district is pre-dominantly made up of three Fante-speaking groups; the Ajumakos, the Enyans and the Bremans. But there are also pockets of other ethnic groups such as the Gomoas, the Agonas, the Ekumfis, the Assins and the Etsiis.
Socio-politically, there are five traditional paramouncies in the district namely, Enyan Abaaasa, Enyan Denkyira, Essiam, Baa, Enyanmaim, and Ajumako. The Enyan speaking Fantes form the greatest proportion of the population and have three of the paramouncies at Enyan Abaasa, Enyan Denkyira and Enyan-Maim.
