The Prince Lot Hula Festival is the largest non-competitive hula event in Hawaii, the festival is held each year to honor Prince Lot Kapuaiwa who reprised the once banned hula in the district of Moanalua.
Our theme is based on a traditional oli, "Laukanaka Ka Hula…A Multitude of Hula Groups Gather' speaks to everyone who appreciates and loves hula," said Alika Jamile, MGF Executive Director and President.
"Our opening ceremonies will include a special hoike (show) in honor of noted kupuna who have made important contributions to our Hawaiian culture and the hula,'" Jamile stated.
Local food and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day. Limited edition tee shirts and a souvenir button will be on sale. Proceeds from these merchandise sales will help cover the costs of the festival.
There is no charge to attend the festival, however, a button donation to MGF is requested to raise funds to support the event. No commercial photography is allowed.
