37th annual Pan-Pacific Festival schedule, traffic advisories

The 37th annual Pan-Pacific Festival, a celebration of cultural traditions of Hawaii, the Pacific Rim and around the world, will run from June 10-12 at various locations throughout Honolulu.

Since its first celebration, the festival has evolved into an international festival bringing various foods, customs, and people together and creating a more global community through the sharing and celebration of cultures.

The three-day festival consists of a ho‘olaule‘a (block party) complete with live entertainment on multiple stages, food, crafts and more. The celebration continues with Performing Arts Showcases, featuring cultural performances and demonstrations. The 16th Annual Pan-Pacific Hula Festival will be held daily on Waikiki Beach featuring more than a dozen hula halau (schools). The festival concludes with a colorful parade of lively costumes and performances by local and national high school bands and various ethnic groups marching along Kalakaua Avenue.

New this year at the ho‘olaule‘a is the Street Dance Festival. This dance exhibition will showcase dance moves from some of Japan’s and Hawaii’s hottest amateur groups. Making an appearance and providing these groups with top dance tips will be Kento Mori, one of the most successful choreographers and professional dancers in the world. He’s worked with various artists like Madonna, Usher, NE-YO, Ciara and Chaka Khan.

All events are free and open to the public. View the full schedule below and click here for more information.
