Every year during the month of July, one of the longest-running festivals in the world kicks off in one of the world’s most stunning destinations.There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of it, but the Heiva Festival in French Polynesia is a huge deal, in a sleepy island group that rarely stresses over anything.The capital city – Papeete – hosts the main song and dance competitions every evening in the “Fare Tahiti Nui” by the cultural center in Place Toata.This is “the main event” and what makes the competitive festival so well known.
The islands rarely suffer from tropical storms except during years when El Niño affects ocean currents.
Let’s see what all the fuss is about and get to know the ins and outs of the Heiva in Tahiti! It is a time of celebration, a national get together in a festival which showcases the very best of the Polynesian culture – by far the most exotic I have come across throughout my .
It is a month-long celebration of life in paradise, a time to respect the past, and a time to share with the rest of the world the rich Polynesian heritage.
And why not add a bit of competition to the flavor?
The Heiva is also a competitive festival, bringing together thousands of singers, artists, dancers, and athletes from all five archipelagos and the 65 inhabited islands of the French Territory who compete as individuals and teams for the ultimate bragging rights.
In parallel, several sites on the island – such as ancient temple complexes – also play hosts to smaller events showcasing the traditional Polynesian culture, as the entire island of Tahiti is enlisted for the festivities.
