About 32nd Heilala Festival

This year’s festival theme ‘Tourism is Our Future’ will feature events to attract visitors from abroad and promote our unique culture.  The Festival includes a Cultural Evening, the Miss Tau’olunga Jr and other exciting events.

The Heilala Festival is a national event which blends ancient traditions and timeless culture with modern entertainment and recreational activities. The Festival symbolises the Kingdom of Tonga’s great pride in its cultural heritage and is the perfect time to witness the splendor and grace of Tonga’s traditional dances; share in the Tongan people’s amazing gift for song and harmony; marvel at the handiwork of local artisans, and enjoy watching or participating in different sporting events.

Registrations for the event are still open so please do not hesitate to contact Tonga Visitors Bureau if you have any further queries.

The annual Heilala Festival would not have been made possible without the support of the local businesses, airlines, banks, tourism operators, government departments and community groups both locally and from abroad.
