Waitakere Pacifica Living Arts Festival

Waitakere Pacifica Living Arts Festival

More than 15,000 people are expected to pour through the 2007 Waitakere Pacifica Living Arts Festival at the Corban Estate Art Precinct, this week.

This signature Waitakere event runs from November 15-17 (Thursday to Saturday) and showcases the sounds, sights, smells and colours of the Pacific.

Highlights include pacific arts, culture and language displays, music, educational workshops, and, of course, live performances.

There will also be plenty of craft, textiles and of course food stalls for everyone to enjoy and you could even come along to kick-start your Christmas shopping.

Now into its 10th year, Pacifica Living Arts Festival has grown from attracting an audience of 2000 people, to an event which brings in 15,000

Organisers believe there is much more growth to come as the event continues to develop into one of the iconic Pacific Islands' events in the Auckland region.

So come along and enjoy the Pacific flavour of the Waitakere Pacifica Living Arts Festival this week.
