Immerse yourself in the rich Hawaiian culture at one of our favorite Kauai events, a celebration of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole, a former heir to the throne during Hawaii’s monarchy, as well as US congressional delegate. The Hawaiian culture comes alive through music, hula, and hands-on activities during this well-loved local event.
Browse educational, cultural, health and wellness exhibits that are great for the whole family, as well as craft booths from local vendors at the Prince Kuhio Day Celebration. Enjoy local Hawaiian comfort food from various food booths and lose yourself in the rhythms of the islands with live music and hula presentations. For an authentic view into Hawaiian culture, come for the start of the event when the Hookupu (offering) protocol ceremony will be held.
Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole is most well known in the Islands for his contributions to preserving land for native Hawaiians in his effort to get congress to pass the 1920 Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, which would provide homesteads for native Hawaiians. As a proponent of preserving the culture of the Hawaiian people, the Prince Kuhio Day Celebration reflects both the richness of Hawaii’s past, as well as its present day culture.
