The ASB Polyfest celebrates its 45th Anniversary from 14-17 April at the Manukau Sports Bowl.
Last year's ASB Polyfest celebrations was cancelled like many large scale events due to COVID-19. This year, the iconic Auckland festival is back with a revised format and continues to be the largest Maori & Pacific Islands Festival in the world. Held over four days and across four stages, traditional music, dance and speech from Auckland secondary school students will take centre stage.
Students will perform and compete on the Cook Islands, Maori, Niue, Samoan, Tongan, and a Diversity stage which features cultures such as Chinese, Fijian, Tokelau, Indian, Korean and Sri Lankan. The event, which will celebrate 45 years, is a much anticipated one on Auckland's cultural festival calendar and is a celebration of youth performance and a showcase of Aotearoa's diverse cultures.
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. This family and community event attracts thousands of visitors every year and is the perfect event to celebrate the diversity of Tamaki Makaurau.
