Cancelled the past two years due to the Christchurch terror attacks and the Covid-19 pandemic, the two-day festival returns but to a new venue at Mt Smart Stadium. Previously it was held at Western Springs.
Organisers say the festival showcases Pacific cultures of the city with music, dance, arts, crafts, demonstrations, storytelling and food.
Hundreds of performers, artists and artisans are taking part.
Richard Clarke, head of Major and Business Events at Auckland Unlimited, said there was great anticipation for the festival this year.
