Rabaul Mask Festival


The National Mask Festival is an annual event mounted by the PNG National Cultural Commission and always hosted in Rabaul.
The festival showcases Papua New Guinea’s mask culture and attracts displays and performers from all over the country,
providing opportunities to see both common and rare masks.
There is no other occasion on PNG’s cultural calendar where such a wide range of masks can be seen in one place,
along with the dances and dramas that they are associated with.
