Wellington Pasifika Festival
The Wellington Pasifika Festival attracts over 15,000 people each year. It's a standout event in both the Wellington regional, and the national calendar.
The festival highlights our tight-knit Pacific communities, our arts, cultural and political landscape and user-friendly city parks and environments. It is an opportunity for all Pacific people to celebrate and share their knowledge, values and beliefs and supports the vision that Wellington is a vibrant, creative capital.
