Our Story

When Pacific Islanders get together it is going to be a good time!  It is a time filled with laughter, singing, dancing, and of course, good food.  In the early 2010s, a group of Pacific Islanders, with military ties, came together desiring to share their cultural joys with the community in which they would retire, start families, and create new relationships.  The group came up with idea of hosting a cultural festival, Poly Fest.  By combining the talents and skills of those in the area, the first Poly Fest was held in 2013.  Since it's inception, Poly Fest has grown from a single day celebration of culture, and has become the North Carolina Pacific Arts Festival and the focus grew to include community outreach, scholarship, and education. 


We invite you to celebrate and learn with us.
