Hawaiʻi is honored to be the chosen host for the 13th Festival of Pacific Arts & Culture from June 10-21, 2020. For decades, we have been welcomed by our cousins across the Pacific, who have shared their ʻāina, their homes, their food and their hearts with us. Now, it is our turn to welcome you with open arms and happy hearts. Together, we, as Pacific Islanders, will unite to share and grow our rich arts and culture, to learn from one another, to chart our paths into the future.
FESTPAC Hawaiʻi, working with the Pacific Community (SPC) , will showcase each nation’s performers, artists and cultural practitioners, while engaging in critical conversations on issues ranging from sustainability and rising oceans to education and gender equality.
