Pasifika 2017

June 28, 2017, 10:51 a.m.

Pasifika has broad appeal both domestically and internationally, with the annual festival's organisers drawing performers from as far afield as Tahiti's Mangareva, showing through traditional dance the legend of 'One Hina'. Having just celebrated it's 25th year, Pasifika continues to hold a special place in Aotearoa's culturally diverse city of Auckland, with strong emphasis on celebrating what it means to be Pacific with particular reference to language, dance, song, traditional art practices, traditional knowledge and last but not least, food from the Pacific.  With approximately 60,000 people attending over the two day period, it also provides an excellent opportunity for business growth and networking throughout the Pacific Islands.
