Coming to New Zealand's capital city this January, complete with a packed program celebrating all aspects of Pacific communities and culture, is the Wellington Pasifika Festival. The event is said to attract around 15,000 people every year and makes its mark on the national events calendar.

This year, taking place at Odlins Plaza on the Wellington waterfront, the event brings together arts, culture, food, local knowledge and more. Those who go along can grab themselves a bit to eat, partake in family friendly activities and enjoy the works of traditional and contemporary Pacific artists.

The program kicks off with a blessing and welcome speech from Minister for Pacific Peoples Hon Aupito Tofae Su'a William Sio. From there the packed lineup includes such acts as Niue Culture Group, Tawa Methodist Church, Tautua Dance, a Pacific cuisine cook-off, Annie Crummer and much more.

The event is free to enter. Be sure to check out the full program on the event website.
