This free two-day event will feature more than half-a-dozen halau (dance troupes) from across the island presenting richly choreographed kahiko (ancient hula) and ‘auana (modern hula) that express the traditional values of Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. ??

On both days, halaus will take the stage every other hour beginning at 10 a.m., with the last performance at 2:30 p.m. Hula lessons will then be offered on Center Stage at 4 p.m.? ?

The weekend celebration also features Hawaiian artisans and crafters demonstrating lei-making, wood carving and other traditional skills.
