Events 2014

The king of cultural events is the "Heiva i Tahiti", traditional party held between June and July for as long as a month, comprising hence the national day's festivities (July the 14th).

It's a time of picturesque celebration, with disputed chants, dances and traditional clothing contests, adding to several sports and cultural tournaments: "pirogue" (outrigger canoe) races, javelin throwing, preparation of "copra" (processed coconut), stone weightlifting, braiding contests...

Island soul is displayed through the "Artisans' Heiva", side-event to its brother the "Heiva i Tahiti" which exposes all of the existing crafts' varieties from the five archipelagoes.

Diverse cultural shows enlighten what's left of the year. Sports cover a main spot, sometimes with international notoriety, surf disciplines and outrigger canoe rowing (va'a) being above all the rest.
