Honolulu Festival is Hawaii's
premier cultural event, promoting
understanding, economic cooperation
and ethnic harmony between the
people of Hawaii and the Pacific Rim
region. Each year, the Festival
draws thousands of new and returning
spectators who are looking for an
experience beyond Hawaii.
Through educational programs and activities
sponsored by the Honolulu Festival Foundation, the
Festival continues to successfully share the rich
and vibrant blend of Asia, Pacific and Hawaiian
cultures with the rest of the world.
Honolulu Festival is a wonderful addition to your
Hawaiian vacation. The three day extravaganza occurs
every year in March on a weekend from Friday through
Sunday. Dance performances and traditional art
demonstrations are displayed by artisans from Japan,
Australia, Tahiti, Philippines, Republic of China
(Taiwan), Korea, Hawaii and the rest of the United
States. The Festival culminates with a spectacular
parade down Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki, Hawaii.
Honolulu Festival Foundation was established in 2000
as a non profit corporation under Chapter 415B of
the Hawaii Revised Statutes. The Foundation is
strictly limited to charitable, educational, and
cultural exchange purposes.
