Pasifika Festival is back and more colourful than ever

08 Apr 2021

The world’s largest celebration of Pacific Culture, Pasifika Festival is a vibrant two-day event that sees nine Pacific Island cultures come to life in eight festival villages. Proudly presented by Auckland Unlimited, the festival will take place at Mt Smart Stadium on the 10 and 11th April 2021. 

With an exciting line up of acts hitting the stage, festival goers not only get to experience each village’s traditional and contemporary performances, but can also sample signature dishes and purchase unique arts and crafts.  


Inspired by the energetic performances and vibrant festival colours, the Resene Pasifika colour palette will be available in the painting area for festival goers to paint their own fans.

Seven of the eight villages feature the Pacific nations of Aotearoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Niue, Samoa, Tonga and Tuvalu. The eighth village is new to this year’s festival and will host the islands of Hawai’i and Kiribati.

Paint your own fan at Pasifika using the Resene Pasifika colour palette to keep yourself colourfully cool and watch live artists at work creating their masterpieces using Resene paints and colours!
