The celebrations continue in the heart of the South Pacific as Samoa hosts the biggest celebration of Polynesian culture – the annual Teuila Festival. Named after the national flower of Samoa, a species of ginger flower, the Teuila Festival is a celebration of all things Samoan and Polynesian and is celebrated annually on the first week of September.

Kicking off on the 25th of August, the festival showcases numerous cultural activities such as choral exhibitions and traditional entertainment such as the Siva Afi (fire knife dancing), wood carving and tattoo demonstrations as well as the hugely popular Chiefs Fiafia island spectacular, fronted by famous Samoan Chief Sielu Avea and his team of entertainers who have performed for government leaders and some of the biggest names in show business. Samoa's international paddling regatta Alo Paopao returns after the inaugural tournament last year.

This year paddlers from all over the South Pacific will make their way to Samoa to race at the regatta. Also, the Scotsman's Trail makes a return. The run/swim challenge will once again see participants traverse the resting place of famous author Robert Louis Stevenson over the Mount Vaea ridge and run down towards the Apia Waterfront and wrap up with a swim in the harbour. The Miss Samoa Pageant also takes place during the week and will end with the crowning of a new Miss Samoa who will take over from Susana Fanueli and go on to represent the Treasured Islands at the Miss South Pacific Pageant in Samoa in November.

This year's celebrations also feature the Ray of Hope Concert at Matautu Tai, along the Apia Waterfront. Performers from Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa as well as local Samoan acts feature as part of this year’s line up. The 24th annual Teuila Festival promises a week of fun and entertainment for the whole family and marks Samoa as the cultural centre of the South Pacific.
