If you want to master the hula the Aloha Festival is one of the best places to learn. Aloha celebrates the cosmopolitan nature of Hawaiian life and culture through musical and dance performances, markets, cook-offs, parades, street parties, boat races and other traditional island activities.

Hula is one of the most important forms of sharing Hawaiian history and has embraced both traditional and contemporary stories, so festival goers will not only learn the moves but their significance as well.

More than a million people take part in or attend one of the 300 festival events held over a two month period on six of Hawaii’s islands. Events are also held in other locations by ex-pat Hawaiians to coincide with the main festival.
