The 67th NGCB Goroka Show comes alive this week


The 67th National Gaming Control Board (NGCB) Goroka Show is set for the 15th, 16th and 17th September 2023 in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province, coinciding with Papua New Guinea’s 48th Independence celebrations.

The ‘Goroka Show’ is a significant cultural event in the Highlands region of Papua New Guinea (PNG).  It is also the longest running annual cultural festival in Papua New Guinea drawing thousands of tourists to the country every year in September during the week of the nation’s Independence Day celebrations.

Over a hundred tribes from all over Papua New Guinea will participate in the event performing extraordinary ‘singsings’ in a riotous display of colour and sound.

The staging of the Goroka Show began in 1957 and was first introduced and organized by Australian patrol officers known locally as ‘kiaps’.
