Linking artists from across the North and South in celebration of diverse expressions of Pacific culture, One Wave Festival aims to build Pacific identity and community. The festival fosters North-South connection and dialogue on Pacific issues like climate change while showcasing the incredible talents of local and Indigenous artists of the region.

Since 2008, One Wave has been a constant feature of Victoria’s vibrant festival scene. One Wave Festival links together local youth, Indigenous artists and leaders, and West Coast talent. It has drawn on highly diverse arts mediums over the years, from slam poetry and spoken word to South Pacific dance, Coast Salish drumming, ska and reggae shows, hip hop jams, art exhibitions, and live painting and carving.

Through One Wave Festival, Pacific Peoples’ Partnership creates space for dialogue about issues throughout the Pacific including cultural integrity, language loss, climate change, ocean pollution, food security, Indigenous identity, effects of colonialism, and racism. The festival’s signature event is a free celebration in Centennial Square every September.
