Kia Orana and Welcome to Te Maeva Nui!
This is the greatest and most important celebration of the year – the Constitution Celebrations reflects the joy and pride in this event of Self Government. We hope that you will experience all aspects of the Cook Islands traditional and modern culture this year.
This festival is a great way to experience the full impact of Cook Islands Culture. It is also a time to bring in our people from the Pa Enua (outer islands) to joyously celebrate this important event as well.
From the 27th of July to 6th of August, one can experience numerous events on the island of Rarotonga. There are Arts & Crafts exhibitions, dancing and drumming competition, the colourful float parade that marks the opening as well as other historical events that are all part of this wondrous occasion.
Te Maeva Nui launches an all week festive mood for both our visitors and people of the Cook Islands.
