Taste of the Islands 2017

15th Annual Taste of the Pacific Islands
Bali Hai Restaurant

Join us as we celebrate our 15th Annual Taste of the Pacific Islands at the beautiful Bali Hai Restaurant.  Since, 2002 PIFA has been working together with local restaurants and catering businesses to share the flavors of the islands.  Through this event we have been able to raise more than $125,000 towards the PIFA Scholarship program.  We thank the many businesses that have participated over the years and our guests that continue to support PIFA.

Motu Nehenehe Polynesian Dancers is a professional Polynesian dance group and studio in existence for over 27 years. It was established in 1990 under the direction of  Babe U’ilani Valero. Motu Nehenehe are Tahitian words which means “Beautiful Island”.  It signifies all the beautiful aspects of island life; the sights, the songs, the dances, and especially the people.  Dances from the islands of Tahiti, Hawaii, Samoa and New Zealand are performed. Motu Nehenehe performs all over San Diego County, Orange County, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  Some of the dancers have also performed abroad in Hawaii, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Mo’orea, Philippines and aboard a cruise ship.
