End Summer The Island Way: The 23rd Annual Pacific Islander Festival

Yes, summer is ending, but don’t be blue. We San Diegans are resourceful people and so we’ll always find reasons to throw great parties!

…Enter our island-vibing friends at the Pacific Island Festival Association (PIFA).

These peeps are all about keeping the warm feels flowing and that’s why Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th, they’re throwing the 23rd Annual Pacific Islander Festival at Mission Bay’s Ski Beach!

This party comes complete with “cultural villages” showcasing crafts, retail, delicious food and more.

There will also be live music, performances (with fire!), and even a PIFA Miss San Diego pageant.

Take a look at the entertainment schedule, below:


PIFA San Diego’s main mission is to perpetuate and preserve the cultures and traditions of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.

So come on out and bring your families and friends and join in on the fun the “Island Way!”
