Hafa Adai! Despite the rain, the Guam Micronesia Island Fair was meaningful. It is the annual signature cultural event of the Guam Visitors Bureau with presentations of the vibrant cultures of Micronesia. This year’s theme, Celebrating 25 Years of Unity Through Culture, commemorates and reinforces the solidarity we have shared through our arts and traditions.
Participants were able to experience the culture and arts of Micronesia on October 5, 6 and 7. Delegations from the Federated States of Micronesia, Rota, Saipan and Tinian and the republics of Kiribati, Nauru, the Marshall Islands and Palau, gathered on Guam to commemorate the region’s largest cultural event. They had the opportunity to meet Micronesia’s master carvers, blacksmiths, traditional fishing experts, jewelers, weavers, dancers, musicians and chefs.
