The 2021 Goroka Show is set for September 17th to 19th in Goroka Town, Eastern Highlands Province. This year’s theme for the show is ‘Save our planet, save our future.”
This year’s Goroka Show will be strictly observing the COVID-19 health and safety ‘Niupela Pasin’ protocols.
The ‘Goroka Show’ is a significant cultural event in the Highlands region of Papua New Guinea (PNG). It is also the longest running annual cultural festival in Papua New Guinea drawing thousands of tourists to the country every year in September during the week of the nation’s Independence Day celebrations.
Over a hundred tribes from all over Papua New Guinea will participate in the event performing extraordinary ‘singsings’ in a riotous display of colour and sound.
The staging of the Goroka Show began in 1957 and was first introduced and organized by Australian patrol officers known locally as ‘kiaps’.
