The city offers lei making workshops to prepare for May Day celebration


The City and County of Honolulu’s Annual Lei Day Celebration will be held on May 1 of each year, regardless of the day of the week.

The city is offering lei making workshops on Oahu, as Kupuna are getting ready for May Day in Hawaii.

All workshops are free and open to the public, unless a cost is noted. Some classes require registration in advance. Click here for the list of lei making workshop schedules on Oahu.

The Lei contest exhibit will be open to the public in the lei exhibit area, an open area between the bandstand and the Waikiki Shell, from 1-5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Kulana Lei, a village of Hawaiian artisans, will share their talents and skills with exhibits and demonstrations throughout the day from 10 a.m. To 5p.m.

At Tutu Hale, the public can hear stories, play Hawaiian games, learn a song, a hula, how to make a lei, and learn how to weave with lauhala from tutu.

There will also be special performance by the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association from 10 a.m. to 3p.m.
