Government will spend $250,000 on a 121-member delegation to the 11th Festival of Pacific Arts in Solomon Islands next month.
Minister for Education, National Heritage, Culture and Arts Filipe Bole will head Fiji's delegation to the festival.
In a government statement, Mr Bole said the Fiji Arts Council was in the process of finalising the selection of 100 participants under each category through its annual competitions such as Heritage Art Competitions to select winners from each category in weaving, carving, pottery, masi and jewellery making.
He said the National Youth Band of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Itumuta Dance Group of Rotuma, and the VOU contemporary dance group will represent Fiji at the festival.
Mr Bole said the inclusion of Fiji's Uto ni Yalo representing Fiji's voyaging society and the vilavilairevo (firewalking) group from Beqa, are the two significant events of the festival.
And 15 high school students from Rabi will also be part of the contingent to the festival.
