iolani-luahine copyThe 14th annual ‘Iolani Luahine Hula Festival will be held at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay. The festival was established in 2003 with a vision to perpetuate the hula, and it also serves as a way to honor the memory of ‘Iolani Luahine and her contributions to the preservation of hula and Hawaiian culture. The two day event will again include workshops and presentations, and an educational challenge to Kumu Hula with a prize for the one who best demonstrates the values of ‘Iolani Luahine: education and Hawaiian culture. There will also be Hawaiian arts and crafts, and evening entertainment for the public. For more info, visit iolaniluahinefestival.org.
