TE MAEVA NUI | 27th July - 04th August 2021

Te Maeva Nui Festival is a week-long national culture and dance event held each year to celebrate the August 4th birthday of the Cook Islands as an independent nation. It is the cultural highlight of the Cook Islands year.

This National Event has grown over the years drawing international visitors from across the globe to Rarotonga for a week of cultural festivities and celebrations through the arts, crafts, music, song, dance and local food. Our Cook Islands people are our richest Asset. The whole Nation literally comes to a standstill as we celebrate our unique culture during Te Maeva Nui.
