The 20th anniversary of the Oamaru Pacific Island Community Group will be marked today with a night of food, music and dance, Pacific Island style.

More than 300 people are expected to attend the celebration at the Oamaru Club, with representatives from each group bringing traditional fare from their island for a buffet-style dinner.

The entertainment will include performers as young as 3 and it was an opportunity for young people to highlight their culture.

It was "awesome" to combine the different cultures, one of the organisers, Sene Fanene said.
