The 2023 Pacific Games is scheduled to be held in Honiara, Solomon Islands between 19 November to 2 December 2023.

This will be the first time the Solomon Islands would host the Games. The event was originally scheduled for July 16 to 29 of 2023.

However, in July 2021, the Games organizers requested a date change due to delays in preparation for the games caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
