Loyalty Islands Fair, 14 to 16 September, 2018
Every year, the Loyalty Islands Fair honours local traditions and ancestral wisdom. This is the only festival centered specifically on the Loyalty Islands. For goods ranging from handicrafts to agricultural produce, activities from fishing to the processing of foodstuffs, come and move to the beat of the 27th annual agricultural fair
A Province Comes Together
Last year it was Maré, this year it is Ouvéa’s turn to host the Loyalty Islands Fair, in the territory of the Hwadrilla tribe. A veritable showcase for agriculture and handicrafts in Loyalty Islands Province, this is a formidable meeting place, where one can dive into the heart of the Loyalty Island’s riches and traditions. For three days, you can move to the rythm of the « island closest to paradise » in a festival that brings all the Loyalty Islands together in a single venue. Join us to share the know-how, the traditions and the local culture of our islands and islanders.
Sharing the Honours
As in every Loyalty Islands Fair, each island has a chance to display its own unique character. Maré highlights its yams and other local produce, sandalwood and honey. Ouvéa shows off its copra (coconut fibre), handicrafts and fish. And Lifou pays tribute to its vanilla, honey and organic products. With its food stands, fresh goods stalls and handicrafts, the fair will fill your days with lovely surprises and memorable encounters. Through numerous workshops, live demonstrations and other events, the locals will share the full range of their cultural heritage.
At the fairgrounds you can also take advantage of Point I, where you can sign up for different activities such as excursions out to sea, visits to a cave, organised tours, hiking, etc.
