Pasifika Vibes Festival
Pasifika Vibes Festival is not just an event; it’s a celebration of unity, culture, and shared purpose. Hosted annually, this festival stands as one of the largest Pasifika gatherings in Australia, drawing an incredible crowd of around 25,000 attendees. The festival unfolds in a vibrant tapestry of food stalls, art & craft markets, live entertainment, and a special children’s village, all aiming to showcase the rich diversity and tradition of Polynesian, Melanesian and Micronesian cultures. From the main stage that features mesmerising talent and performances to the intricacies of handcrafted artefacts, Pasifika Vibes Festival serves as a dynamic platform for cultural exchange.
The mission and vision of the organising body, Pasifika Families Inc., is encapsulated in the mantra: “Many people, shared purpose. All cultures working together so our roots run deeper.” This sentiment is evident in every facet of the festival. The heartbeat of the event is volunteerism; a team of dedicated volunteers, many juggling full-time work, come together to make Pasifika Vibes Festival a reality. Their spirit is a living testament to the ethos of collective endeavour and community building. By participating, you’re not just attending a festival; you’re becoming part of a community-driven effort to promote understanding, cultivate inclusivity, and celebrate the rich tapestry of our shared human experience. Welcome to Pasifika Vibes Festival, where every moment is a serendipitous exploration of culture, unity, and collective joy.
Pasifika Vibes Festival is an annual non-profit event organised by Pasifika Families Inc. committee members and is made possible by the sponsorship and in-kind support from local businesses, and the many wonderful volunteers from within the local community to ensure the day is a success.
Funds generated by the food and market stalls through site fees, together with grants from other sources, are used to assist in the provision of children’s activities, live entertainment, advertising, and amenities. The provision of such activities and equipment ensures a huge attendance. In turn, community groups and stallholders enjoy the benefits of fundraising activities and sales respectively.
