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.

The lively markets at Pasifika Festival are an experience in itself. Many of the stalls inside the Pasifika villages are run by community groups or families who come together to showcase their arts and crafts for a truly genuine Pacific market experience.

Along with the traditional wares you would expect to find, there are stalls offering a variety of authentic products and treasures, from resort wear and pearls to preserves and natural oil products.

Those who enjoy getting hands-on will appreciate the interactive style. As a visitor to Pasifika you are invited to explore your creative side with activities such as; weaving, lei making and carving or test your rhythm with a drum or ukelele lesson.
