The ASB Polyfest, Auckland Secondary Schools Māori & Pacific Islands Cultural Festival, is back in 2021. The iconic festival will celebrate its 45th anniversary this year, after this milestone was put on hold last year due to COVID-19.

This iconic festival returns this year with revised dates and format, but the same pride and passion that the festival is famous for.

This event attracts thousands of spectators and performers ever year. Four cultural stages will feature performances from Māori, Samoan, Tongan, Cook Islands, Niuean and Diversity cultural groups as well as the annual speech competition.

The revised festival layout also allows more space for stallholders to spread out, and social distancing for attendees. Cultural food stalls, arts & crafts and a range of expo stallholders are also a festival highlight.

This event is the largest Māori and Pacific Island festival in the world, and brings a huge range of cultures together into one community.
