This year we’ve extended the festival to get you celebrating Pasifika more than ever before. Get a run up to the festivities with the Pasifika Village Games on Saturday 4 March, then chill out with great tunes at the Sunday Soul Session on Sunday 12 March. 

Once Pasifika Festival weekend arrives, explore 8 villages representing the unique culture, food, and people of 11 Pacific Island nations.

An exciting new Pacific Bowls programme is also set to debut in 2023, exhibiting our pacific culture. Stay tuned for further details here.
