Overview of festivals and celebrations in Fiji
One of the central holidays of national importance is Fiji Day, which is celebrated in the middle of October. The celebration is based on a double event. It was specifically on this day in the second half of the 19th century, that the first Fijian king Takombau renounced the throne in favor of the British Queen Victoria. Also on this same day in the second half of the 20th century, Fiji gained independence from the British crown. The week before the holiday is called Fiji Week, during which celebrations are organized for the glory of national unity, as well as religious and cultural diversity. The event features rallies and speeches by Fijian politicians, concerts and handicraft exhibitions, educational and recreational activities, entertainment for children, and charitable evenings. Despite almost half a century of being a republic, the Queen’s Birthday which falls on the middle of June, is still officially celebrated to this day on the islands.
