This fantastic event is meant to be spent among "friends". The hospitality of the California's island people originating from Polynesia, Guam, Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, Aotearoa, Northern Marianas, Belau, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Fiji, is undeniably alluring and enchanting, as you'll see when you come to the free Polynesian fest. Those who follow the circuit of island festivals around California can appreciate this venue and price. Other such events take place for free at Long Beach beaches, San Diego's Mission Bay, or for a fee in concert venues. The Central Park location offers great shade for an enjoyable day without getting "cooked".

Authentic, homemade foods and cultural displays in 10 Island Villages include cultural demonstrations, practitioners, island food and refreshment booths, and more. On Center Stage is the highlight, costumed dancers performing in a friendly competition that showcases the diversity of costumes and styles of the many islands that comprise the Pacific Rim.
