The iconic Pasifika Festival is back from Saturday 24 to Sunday 25 March, 2018!
You don’t need to go far to experience island life in the Pacific. Two
days, 11 islands, and an island hop away from a gourmet selection of Pasifika favourites including Hawaii’s smoky barbecue, the Samoan delicacy Palusami (best eaten with a nice piece of baked taro) or visit the village of Tokelau for a tasty traditional fish dish.
Get with the island beat and be entertained by some of Pasifika’s best. Immerse yourself in our Māori culture on the Aotearoa stage or be awe-struck by the Cook Island drummers on one of the 11 stages at Western Springs Park.
- 11 authentic Pacific Island villages
- Delicious food stalls
- Arts & crafts
- Traditional and contemporary Pacific Island music & performances
This family-friendly, free event is a great way to experience the diverse cultures of our Pacific whanau. Pack a picnic rug, slip on your jandals, and get ready to celebrate Auckland’s rich Pacific culture and heritage.
Keep an eye out for the full festival programme and our top tips for the festival, available in March.
