Hawaiʻi Welcomes Festpac

WHEN ALOHA IS GIVEN, ALOHA IS RECEIVED

The aloha spirit is a way of life in Hawaiʻi. It lives in all that we do and all that we are as Hawaiian people.

Akahai-kindness to be expressed with tenderness

Lōkahi-unity, to be expressed with harmony

ʻOluʻolu-agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness

Haʻahaʻa-humility, to be expressed with modesty

Ahonui-patience, to be expressed with perseverance

With aloha, we welcome all to our island home. We invite our Pacific Island brothers, sisters and cousins to share in art, in dance, in practice, all the traditions that connect us.

FESTPAC Hawaiʻi will put 28 nations of the Pacific within arms reach in one beautiful location. For many people, this may be the only time to experience the vibrancy of some of these nations in person. Witness history! Craft the future. Take in every movement, every moment. Learn something you never knew before. Talk about what matters most. Make new friends and create unforgettable memories. Aloha kākou!
