Resene to bring colour to Pasifika's painting area

11 Mar 2020

Auckland’s world-renowned celebration of its Pacific Island communities and whanau returns to Western Springs Park, Auckland this weekend!

Pasifika has 11 distinctly different villages, each with a performance stage and market stalls selling signature dishes and crafts unique to the village’s culture.

The villages represent Aotearoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Hawai’i, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tokelau, Tonga and Tuvalu.

The festival is free to enter, and features plenty of free activities and live entertainment.

There are food, craft and retail stalls where festival-goers can buy authentic food, clothing, traditional arts and crafts, food stuffs, skin care, novelties and souvenirs from the festival.

Make sure you stop by the Resene painting area and paint yourself a leaf fan using Resene’s Pasifika colour palette to keep you cool, then take a break and check out the talented artists creating their Pasifika themed artworks with Resene paints.
