Manukau Sports Bowl
The festival is an iconic annual event that celebrates the pride and passion of our Maori and Pacific Island communities through cultural song, dance, speech and art. The Diversity Stage allows other ethnic groups to be represented also. It is a place where we celebrate youth and all that they bring to the future.
From small beginnings, the Auckland Secondary Schools Maori and Pacific Islands Cultural Festival has become the largest of its kind in the world.
With spectator numbers of 95,000 people attending, 65 schools participating with 9,000 performers and 192 groups in 2011, next year promises to be a great event.
In 2012 the Polyfest Trust will be piloting a new host school model. This involves six secondary schools hosting a stage each.
We would like to acknowledge our Kura Matua 2012 - Kia Aroha College who have created the artwork and theme for for this year's festival.
The ASB Polyfest is a Drug and Alcohol free event and we are proud to be smokefree.
