The festival will feature cultural traditions, performances and arts of Pacific Island nations including Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti (Polynesia), Aotearoa (New Zealand), Guam, Northern Marianas, Marshall Islands (Micronesia), and Fiji (Melanesia). Expect to see cultural demos, hands on-art projects, coconut and pandanus plaiting (weaving), lei making, storytelling, lots of music and dancing – and before I forget, delicious dishes from the Islands!
