Join the world’s largest celebration of Pacific Culture, with live music and dance, markets and traditional food at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of April.
After two years of being cancelled we are excited to welcome the 2021 Pasifika Festival to its new home at Mt Smart Stadium.
This free, family-friendly event celebrates the diverse cultures of Auckland’s Pacific aiga.
There are 9 villages, each representing a different Pacific Island culture, with delicious authentic foods, arts and crafts stalls and demonstrations, traditional and contemporary Pacific Island music & performances.
Pack a picnic rug and some sunscreen, and experience Auckland’s rich Pacific culture and heritage.
Try Hawaii’s smokey barbecue, the Samoan delicacy palusami (best eaten with a nice piece of baked taro) or sample Tuvaluan kaleve, a drink made from coconut sap.
Get Māori nail art at the Aotearoa village, check out traditional Fijian costumes and accessories, see how artisans from Tokelau use time-honoured techniques to create fishing lures from shells, and enjoy dancing and drumming from around the Pacific.
This year Pasifika will also feature companies from around the Pacific, showcasing traditional and innovative products bound for New Zealand and international markets.
