History

The Vision of Pasifika Gold Coast was birthed in 2010 and has grown into one of the Gold Coasts biggest Multi  Cultural events. 

That vision took shape in  November 2011 when Founder Pule Tulisi & Festival Director Alec Palupe organised the very first PASIFIKA event in Coomera before moving it to Broad Beach State School in 2012.

The Aims of Pasifika Gold Coast is to showcase the cultures that exist on the Gold Coast & to showcase the gifts & Talents of our Pacific People.

The Event today brings Cohesion & positive outcomes in bringing all Pacific cultures together in one place to celebrate that diversity.
