The Tapati Rapa Nui is the most important cultural festival of Easter Island. A unique event in the world whose next edition will be held in February 2020. Tapati Rapa Nui literally means 'Week of Rapa Nui' in the local language, but under that name a series of unique events that make up this festival come together.
This great festival is celebrated every year during the first half of February. La Tapati, which was born more than 40 years ago and had its origin in the ancient 'spring festivities' that were celebrated in Chile, has been transformed over time to become a tribute to the ancestral traditions of the Rapanui people, and on a unique occasion to revive, share and preserve the cultural identity of this fascinating corner of the planet.
Participation in the Tapati is massive on the part of the inhabitants of the island, all are involved with pride and enthusiasm and many invest their time and energy preparing and rehearsing throughout the year. That rooting for your party is spread to the visitor who is invited to participate supporting one of the groups, living a unique and unforgettable experience.
