An annual event held on the big stage at Waikoloa Bowl, this hula extravaganza features halau (groups) from Hawaii and Japan competing under the stars. During the day, workshops and cultural fairs take place at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort. www.mokuokeawe.org.
On weekends, a young crowd gyrates to hot dance music under strobes. Hip-hop, techno, and electronic beats are spun by a professional DJ. The party lasts well into the wee hours. www.lulushawaii.com.
The 10-screen theater in Kailua-Kona has stadium seating and digital surround sound.
Held over 10 days, the longest-running food festival in Hawaii includes coffee recipe, picking and label design contests, cupping competitions, and a colorful community parade featuring the newly crowned Miss Kona Coffee. A highlight is the Holualoa Village Coffee and Art Stroll, during which you can meet artists and sample estate coffees. www.konacoffeefest.com.
Critically acclaimed films and the occasional art-house flick are shown on four screens in this pretty art-deco building. Since the movies are not-so-recently released, the price is right at $1 to $1.75 per person. You can even get a hot dog for $1.75 and free refills on large popcorns and sodas.
