The award-winning nonprofit Tafesilafa’i Inc. will be hosting its seventeenth Tafesilafa’i Festival at the Aquarium of the Pacific August 1 to 4. This year’s theme “Talita Kumi: Heal the World” invites guests to take a closer look into their lives and reflect how personal experience and healing has shaped their lives.
The Pacific Islanders will perform and exhibit their culture, language, and customs through songs and dances to the beat of island drums, including a fire knife show. Admission to the festival on the Aquarium’s front lawn is free. Aquarium admission is not included.
