The Hana Cultural Center Ho‘olaule‘a is an annual event that creates awareness in the community about the cultural center and our mission and activities, and provides an opportunity to share the rich history and culture of Hana with residents and visitors alike.
This year the event will be held on Saturday, August 15, 2020 at the Hana Cultural Center.
The Ho‘olaule‘a features Hawaiian music, with a featured headliner (TBA), and popular local musicians. The music will be broadcast live on KOKO FM 96.3 low-power radio station and streamed on kokolp.org.
The event features “A Taste of Hana” with favorite entrée’s by some of Hana’s best chefs, sharing cuisine from Hana’s cultural traditions.
Cultural demonstrations will be offered, and Hawaiian games like ulumaika for keiki and adults.
As a fundraiser to benefit the Hana Cultural Center’s programs, there will be a silent auction and lucky draw with items donated by Maui crafters and businesses.
A farmers’ market tent will be hosted by the Hana Chapter of the Hawaii Farmers Union United, with the proceeds also donated to the Hana Cultural Center.
During the event, the museum, gift shop and historical Courthouse will be open for festival-goers to enjoy. The popular “Faces of Hana” display will be featured in the Courthouse, with many high quality black and white photographs of Hana’s old-timers. A photographer will be on hand to continue adding to our Faces of Hana collection, documenting the wonderful characters of this unique community.
The Ho‘olaule‘a event provides an opportunity for the Hana community to gather together to celebrate and share the history and culture of our town, and for our locals and visitors to learn more about the mission and programs of the Hana Cultural Center, and how they can support and get involved.
