Watch the night light up with performers of this traditional, exhilarating Samoan art form as they showcase their talents and compete for glory, setting the Festival and Auckland region aflame 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.

As a special treat, join the fire knife dancers as part of our Whānau Fiesta at the Festival Playground, Silo Park on Saturday 19 March, just before sunset.
