Guam to Host 12th Festival of the Pacific Arts
May 22 - June 4, 2016

A delegation of 2,500 performers, artists and cultural practitioners representing 25 Pacific nations is anticipated for the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts (FOPA) to be held in Guam in 2016. The Festival will take place from May 22 to June 4, 2016.

The Festival of the Pacific Arts is a traveling festival hosted every four years by a different country in the Pacific. The event was conceived by the Fiji Arts Council and endorsed by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) in 1972 to stop the erosion of traditional practices by sharing and exchanging culture at each festival. It is recognized as a major regional cultural event, and is the largest gathering in which Pacific peoples unite to enhance their respect and appreciation of one another.
