Come visit San Francisco to experience the sights, sounds and scents of the South Pacific with live entertainment, educational workshops, crafts, merchandise, services, food and snacks.
The FREE ADMISSION event is made possible by some of the greatest performers and best independently owned businesses and organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in 2013 by Polynesian Gift Hut owner and artisan, Charles Hamer aka "Uncle Charlie", the Event began as a dream shared with others wanting to come together to celebrate, share and learn about cultures, traditions and lifestyles in the South Pacific. Having roots and ties to the islands of Hawai'i, Samoa, Tonga and Fiji, Uncle Charlie wanted to enrich the lives of others by establishing the Event in his hometown where he's been living since 1965.
Since 2004, Uncle Charlie has participated as a Vendor at different events in California listed below, and always welcomes any invitation to exhibit his handcrafted items and souvenir products.
