Coronavirus precautions

Extra safety measures at Canterbury's Polyfest this year

Canterbury Polyfest has been celebrating Pasifika cultures, language and identity through song and dance for 19 years.

The extra safety precautions are due to last year's Christchurch mosque shooting, in which 51 people died, and the currentĀ Covid-19 coronavirusĀ pandemic.

Organisers have stated on their Facebook page that they are in daily communication with the Ministry of Health (MOH).
