Markets and activities

The bustling markets are a favourite at the Pasifika Festival, with a lively atmosphere and a huge range of arts and crafts.

If shopping is your thing, along with the traditional wares, there are more than 230 food and craft stalls offering a variety of authentic products and experiences, from tattoo artists and pearls to preserves and natural oil products. See stone carvers from Fiji, traditional mat weavers and take a dance or ukelele lesson.

Many of the stalls inside the Villages are run by community groups or families who come together to showcase their arts and crafts for a truly genuine Pacific market experience.
