Hale Mana'o
Get up close and personal with performers, artists, and presenters at the House of Knowledge, where you can ask questions and interact with the presenters.

Storytellers, Tahitian drummers, voyagers on ocean-going canoes, and tattooists from the Hawaiian and Maori tradition are among those who have presented.

The Festival seeks guest artists each year to bring their expertise and knowledge, some traveling from Hawaii, New Zealand or other South Pacific islands .


Keiki Make'n'Take Activities
Keiki of all ages can always make their own lei of colorful paper flowers, a Festival favorite activity.

Other activities change each year, and have included making mini poi balls, yarn lei, and stampingtapa prints.

Aunty Aloha's Ukulele Corner
Love to play the ukulele or just interested? Local 'uke' players congregate here to jam and experienced players are here all day to teach the versatility of this instrument to those interested.

Discovery Stage
This stage is where audience is literally part of the performance as the more intimate surroundings bring you closer.

Typically spotlighting our guest artists and solo performances, you may find yourself part of the action as the fun spills off the stage.
