Be enchanted at ‘Island Night’ cultural shows, groups dancing with fire to the fast rhythm, beaten out on a wooden drum. Head to the vibrant Punanga Nui markets for music, dance and authentic local cuisine. Here you’ll discover beautiful local craft like stunning Tivaevae (colourful quilts) or hand-made ukuleles. Or join us at church on Sunday as we wear our finest hats and lift our voices in passionate, harmonious song.
A highlight of the cultural calendar is the annual Te Maeva Nui Festival in August – a festival of Cook Islands’ culture featuring spectacular dance and music performances at the National Auditorium.
