ASB Polyfest is a four day event held annually in March which celebrates traditional culture through song, dance and speeches. Secondary School students throughout Auckland and further afield, perform and compete on stages representing Maori, Cook Islands, Niuean, Samoan and Tongan cultures. Other cultures showcase their performances on the Diversity Stage. The festival is reputed to be the largest of its kind in the world with upwards of 9,000 student performers from over 60 schools with spectators over the four days at over 90,000.
ASB has been naming rights partner of ASB Polyfest for over 30 years. Our support has enabled the festival to grow from its small beginnings - 4 schools competing at a host school, to the spectacular event it is today. ASB has a large contingent of volunteers who support the fun and educational activities.
