Arizona Aloha Festival: Know before you go!

Share the Aloha, not the Virus!

Our goal is to gather together again in a safe environment for all who attend.  Please kokua (help) yourself, your ohana, and your fellow festival-goers by following these practices:

  • Do not attend the Festival if you are feeling sick. There are other viruses besides Covid, like the flu, that also are out there and are transmissible through the air.
  • If you are considered to be at high risk, consider waiting for the next Festival. Hospitals are overburdened now so we don’t want you getting sick and at risk of complications.
  • We strongly recommend wearing a face covering. Yes, the Festival is outdoors and lessens risk of transmission or exposure. But yes, the current Covid variation is extremely transmissible. Wear the covering for yourself, your ohana, and especially for keiki (children) and elders.
  • You must follow all posted or publicly announced instructions while attending the Festival.  That includes any instructions posted not only by the Festival but also individual vendor booth spaces.
By attending Arizona Aloha Festival, you voluntarily assume all risks
related to exposure to COVID-19.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens, and those with underlying medical conditions, are especially vulnerable.

Help keep each other healthy so we can see you again in 2023!

Sharing your Aloha at the event: expectations of behavior
The word 'aloha' is symbolic of a code of conduct respected by Islanders across the Pacific. The word may be different in other languages but the spirit is the same. The 'Spirit of Aloha' is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect. Aloha is living in harmony.
  • No Alcohol is allowed.
  • Chairs at the stages are for those who can't stand for long periods of time. They can't be saved. Any unattended personal belongings left on empty chairs may be removed by the stage staff and set aside for claiming later.
  • When at stages: personal umbrellas are only allowed behind the section with chairs, keep them low so you don't block others. No golf umbrellas at the stages.
  • No tents, popups, or shade structures: We agree the park is not full of shady trees but no personal tents at the event can be allowed.

Why these restrictions?
There's a long list of reasons: safety, courtesy to others, and restrictions of our host, the Park. These actions are simply not allowed.
