The Kiriwina Cultural Festival will be held in early September 2020. June to August is the normal harvesting season for yams in the Trobriand Islands, and this date would coincide with the last period of the harvesting season. The cultural festival will be a combined event for Kiriwina Island and surrounding islands, and will be the first time in a few years for a large amalgamated cultural event to be held in Kiriwina after the famous Milamala Yam Festival ceased due to local challenges. The event will showcase the famous and intriguing Trobriand Islands culture and traditions, and will be one not to be missed!
