Auckland’s iconic Pasifika Festival will transform Western Springs into a vibrant heart of Pacific culture once again on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March 2019.
In its 27th year, this free and family friendly event brings together Pacific communities to celebrate diverse cultures of the South Pacific.
With more than 200 traditional and contemporary performances throughout the two-day event, festival-goers will experience traditional artforms and practices from 10 different villages, each representing a distinct Pacific culture. This year’s event includes villages from the Cook Islands, Fiji, Niue, Aotearoa, Hawaii, Tokelau, Samoa, Tahiti, Tuvalu and Tonga.
Taste authentic food, see rousing music and dance performances, browse the markets for arts and crafts, and get an insight into contemporary and traditional practices across many diverse cultures.
The festival will proceed rain or shine. Attendees are encouraged to prepare according to the day’s weather forecast. There are many public transport options available to and from the festival location at Western Springs. Further information on bus and train schedules can be found via aucklandtransport.govt.nz.
