We ignite the night with performers of this traditional, exhilarating Samoan art form as they showcase their talents and compete for glory, setting alight the Festival with the fire of Polynesia.

Feel the heat, sense the excitement and marvel at the skill of Polynesian warrior men and women as they demonstrate their battle prowess by mastering the fire knife dance.

Experience the phenomenon of siva afi ailao as South Auckland hosts a fire knife competition between local secondary schools alongside a free festival of wāhine toa afi performances, which are sure to light up Tāmaki Makaurau this summer.
