About the Team

The Diversity Festival is a festival that recognises and celebrates the distinct cultural diversity and vibrancy of the Otara-Papatoetoe community.

The festival is funded by Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board with support from local businesses and organisations.

Our chairperson’s vision was to have this festival run by our community for our community.

We hope everyone will take this opportunity to learn about a new culture, taste some exotic food and enjoy fun performances from all the diverse peoples of Otara, Papatoetoe and Manukau.
