The Frangipani Festival occurs annually during the week of the Independence Day Anniversary.
Rabaul residents invite you to join them to celebrate the rebirth of Rabaul after the 1994 twin volcanic eruptions that almost completely destroyed the town.
Named after the frangipani flower, the town’s signature bloom was the first plant to blossom. The festival brings together locals to celebrate their culture and town in a colourful and vibrant show.
There will be parades, sing-sing and Baining men performing fire dances.
