The 72nd Annual Na Hula Festival has a new home this year. Instead of at the Kapiolani Bandstand, the free festival will be held at the Waikiki Shell due to current construction of the bandstand.

This is the longest-running annual non-competitive hula event in Hawaii. The ones you may see online or on TV, such as Merrie Monarch and Keiki Hula, are well-known hula competitions in the islands. This upcoming festival in Honolulu brings together hula halau (hula troops) from the community for two days of cultural appreciation and family fun.

This year will feature the Puanani Alama and Leilani Alama Hula Studios, as well as a Lei Queen and Court. This is a great way for visitors to join in on the celebration of Hawaii’s premiere dance form. The schedule of performances is as follows:
