On Sunday, June 28th, the celebration continues with traditional Hawaiian foods tasting and hukilau (traditional fishing) demonstration. This year’s festival theme is : “I ulu nō ka lālā i ke kumu – without the ancestors, we would not be here.”
The Cultural Festival takes visitors back in time so they can experience how Hawai‘i would’ve felt in the 1700’s. Practitioners in traditional dress will provide visitors with a uniquely Hawaiian experience, honor the culture and traditions of cultural experts and the Hawaiian people, and provide visitors and community members a time and place to gather, learn, and share. Take home craft items that you learned to make with your own hands!
