CULTURE

ENGA SHOW 2019

For the first time, we are offering this unique cultural show package. Our 6 day, 5 night tour takes in the local culture as well as the sites and places of interest around Wabag and Wapenamanda townships. 

Until only very recently, Enga Province and its people remained untouched by the outside world. It was in the 1930’s when Australian explorers first ventured up this way and in the 1950’s for modern development to start.

With just a generation between now and “first contact”, this truly is the world’s last frontier, where traditional lifestyles and practices are still very much intact. This is what sets The Enga Cultural Show apart from all the other PNG Highlands shows - its pure authenticity – a showcase that is 100% Engan.

Hosted in the provincial capital town of Wabag, surrounded by majestic escarpments, breathtaking scenery and pristine Highlands air, The Enga Cultural Show is staged annually over three days from Friday to Sunday on the second weekend in August. Although thousands of people attend the event each year, only a handful of these are outsiders. The Enga Cultural Show is still “undiscovered” by tourists, so visitors really do feel a special sense of intimacy from their show experience. You will be immersed back into another time as you wander the
showgrounds and witness displays and demonstrations of important ancient rituals, arts and crafts and valuable traditional life skills.

At the centrepiece of The Enga Cultural is a mind-boggling mass display of traditional dance, where the cacophony of costumes, chants and beats will leave you with a lasting impression of the sheer diversity and vibrancy of Engan cultures and a deeper sense of connection with humanity’s past.
