The iconic Pasifika Festival is celebrating its 25th birthday. With free entry, more than 220 performance groups and 60,000 visitors expected, this is a party you won’t want to miss!

Western Springs Park will be transformed into 11 villages representing different Pacific Islands. Each village has a distinctly different vibe. From the peaceful setting of the Niue and Tuvalu villages, follow your nose and you will discover Hawaii’s smokey BBQ delights; if you are wondering what the noise is about, head along to the Aotearoa, Cook Island and Samoa villages. They are renowed for their stage performances.

There will be a special 25th birthday showcase performance featuring Resonate, who will be performing their famous ‘Moana Mash Up’, based on the latest Disney movie, it has over a million views on You Tube! Full programme details will be available in early March. Keep up to date on Facebook or Instagram
