ASB POLYFEST 2020 IS CANCELLED
The ASB Polyfest celebrates its 45th Anniversary from 18-21 March at the Manukau Sports Bowl.
The iconic Auckland festival is the largest Maori & Pacific Islands Festival in the world, and features traditional music, dance and speech from Auckland secondary school students. It is a celebration of youth performance, and a showcase of New Zealand’s diverse cultures.
Students compete in speech, song and dance on six stages - Cook Islands, Maori, Niue, Samoan, Tongan, and a Diversity stage which features cultures such as Chinese, Fijian, Tokelau, Indian, Korean and Sri Lankan. Students perform on these stages with pride and passion, and the honour of being top school in their respective culture.
Another key component of the ASB Polyfest is food and craft. Each stage has a surrounding village with food & craft stalls from the respective Maori or Pacific culture.
ASB Polyfest 2020 will see more than 12,000 secondary school students from across the Auckland region perform on stage, with 234 performing groups entered from 66 schools last year. Over 100,000 people are expected to attend the festival over its four day duration.
The theme for the 2020 ASB Polyfest is –
“Mā roto mai i te Ahurea whirikoka, ko te whakaora tinana, hinengaro, wairua me te ira tangata”
“Healing the body, mind, spirit and soul
with the strength of Culture”
