Said Paradise Beverages’ General Manager of Marketing & New Product Development Rowena Taito, “This is the sixth year we have been involved with this fantastic local event. Our Vonu Export ultra low carb beer is a great choice for this great day out.

“Returning festival-goers might remember that we launched this beer at last year’s event and it was a great success with its clean, crisp, light and refreshing taste - it has around 80% less carbs than an average beer and very low gluten content.”

“This year we’re delighted that Vonu Export will be the official beer of the 2018 festival, we’ll also be offering our full range of Fijian-made, award-winning Rum Co of Fiji spirits, beers and ready to drink beverages.”

This event puts Pacific Harbour on the map for both locals and tourists, with over 12 hours of local entertainment keeping the small community abuzz throughout the festival weekend. It’s a major event for local businesses too, with local accommodation fully booked and local shops and vendors preparing for a busy week and a fantastic vibe that takes over Pacific Harbour for the weekend.

Uprising Beach Resort Owners Representative & Head of Sales and Marketing, James Pridgeon said, “We intend to change things up a bit this year. We are expecting up to 2000 attendees with another sold out event expected again in 2018. What better stage is there to raise awareness around issues affecting our region today, such as climate change, than right by the Pacific Ocean. This will be showcased through special performances that some of our dance groups will be putting together. We will dedicate the first two hours of the event specifically to raise awareness on this issue and will be looking to partner with regional Climate Change NGO, 350.org, to assist us with this. We will also continue with our support for Mangroves for Fiji as well as the WOWS Foundation. We cannot wait for Saturday November 10.”
