Pearl Festival Long Table Dinner 2014

In support of a long term goal to create an annual Pearl Festival, CIPA provided support to the Pearl Festival Committee to develop a plan, to create promotional materials and to try out events for the future annual festival. In October 2014, the Marina Long Table Dinner for 140 people was hosted by the Pearl Festival Committee in partnership with the Cook Islands Chefs Association. The dinner was the first of its kind to ever be held in the Cook Islands. The long table was set up on the marina near the Avatiu Wharf, Rarotonga and commenced with cocktails at sundown.
