You don’t need to go far to experience island life in the Pacific, at the 2018 Pasifika Festival. 

Two days, 11 islands, and an island hop away from a gourmet selection of Pasifika favourites including Hawaii’s smoky bbq, the Samoan delicacy Palusami (best eaten with a nice piece of baked taro) or visit the village of Tokelau for a tasty traditional fish dish.

Get with the island beat and be entertained by some of Pasifika’s best. Immerse yourself in our Maori culture on the Aotearoa stage or be awe-struck by the Cook island drummers on one of the 11 stages at Western Springs Park. 

This family-friendly, free event is a great way to experience the diverse cultures of our Pacific whanau. Pack a picnic rug, slip on your jandals, and get ready to celebrate Auckland’s rich pacific culture and heritage!

Stallholder registrations will be opening soon. Keep an eye out for more information or email
