Every June, Honolulu comes together to celebrate the vibrant art and culture from around the Pacific Rim that the city is famous for. The 37th Annual Pan-Pacific Festival is the rare opportunity to experience the diverse beauty of the islands in one weekend. Enjoy hula festivals, exciting parades, traditional Hawaiian music, Japanese cultural showcases, and much more all just minutes from our Waikiki hotel.
Taking place from June 10 to 12, the weekend kicks off with the Pan-Pacific Ho‘olaule‘a, a celebration of goodwill and one of the biggest multi-cultural events in the state. Enjoy thrilling Japanese Taiko drumming, graceful Korean dance, and the soothing traditional music of the islands. The Pan-Pacific Hula Festival draws big crowds every year as they come to watch Hawaii's most popular form of dancing with the sun setting over Waikiki Beach. Check the Pan-Pacific Festival schedule for a list of events happening through the three-day event.
This annual Honolulu festival concludes with an entertaining parade down Kalakaua Avenue on Sunday, June 12th. Cheer on local marching bands, exciting live music acts, and talented dance troupes as they make their way down Waikiki's main thoroughfare.
