Come along to the 43rd annual ASB Polyfest to enjoy incredible performances from local secondary schools. Visit the Museum’s stand for your chance to get hands-on with (pre-smartphone!) Pacific technology.
The ASB Polyfest features traditional music, dance, costume and speech and is now recognised as an important showcase of New Zealand’s diverse cultures and a celebration of youth performance.
Students compete on five stages, performing traditional items from Cook Islands, Maori, Niue, Samoan and Tongan culture. A Diversity stage features performances from a range of cultural groups including Fijian, Tokelau, Chinese, Korean and Indian.
