Our WAIFEST Cultural Evening is all about bringing the community together with cultural dance, music and food. The students at Waikōwhai Intermediate take enormous pride in the cultural performances that are put on each year. Hours are spent on every stage of the process, and as a result, year in and year out, they are spectacular! From K-Pop to the Samoan Sasa, Bollywood to the African Gumboot Dance ... there's a performance for everyone! 

With food stalls boosting international flavours (or just pure local delicacies), raffle draws, silent auction and cultural performances that amaze a standing room-only crowd, WAIFEST is an evening not to be missed.


This year marked our 11th year of WAIFEST! We had a fabulous evening of mini eateries, take-away windows, amazing raffle prizes and incredible cultural performances. We had a spectacular turnout -thank you to everyone who came out to support us!

A HUGE thank you to the following people for helping to make Waifest 2024 such an incredible success:
