Celebrate in Hawaiʻi

Many of Hawaiʻi’s most memorable celebrations occur annually. Some, like the Honolulu Marathon (December) and the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival (October), draw visitors and participants from around the globe. Others, like Oʻahu’s Prince Lot Hula Competition (July) or the Eo E Emalani I Alakaʻi Festival (October) on Kauaʻi and the statewide King Kamehameha Celebration (June) are primarily local occasions. These events have a strong allure for visitors who want to get an authentic glimpse of Hawaiʻi during their trip.
