Save the Date for the 37th Annual Hawaiian Cultural Festival & BioBlitz at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park!
Themed Hilina‘i Puna, Kālele iā Ka‘ū (Puna leans and reclines on Ka‘ū), the 37th annual Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park Hawaiian Cultural Festival invites people of all districts and ages to engage in authentic Hawaiian cultural practices and learn how native Hawaiians lived closely to the land as its stewards. Enjoy hula and music, watch skilled practitioners demonstrate their art, and try your hand at Hawaiian crafts. This year’s festival will again include a “BioBlitz,” a fun and hands-on opportunity to join scientists and cultural practitioners and discover the biodiversity that thrives in the park.
