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 and culture, 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.

Experience the sights, sounds and flavours of the wider Pacific right here in Wellington. There will be delicious food to buy, free family-friendly activities, and performances by traditional and contemporary Pacific artists.
