Experience the Meaning of "Aloha!" on Vacation in Hawaii This September
Celebrate Hawaiian Culture All Around the Islands
September – October
Aloha in Hawaii means several things, but during September and October, it means time for the Aloha Festivals! What began sixty years ago as a week-long celebration of all things Hawaiian, has evolved into a celebration lasting well over a month and spanning Hawaii’s six islands. And it’s free! The festival’s opening ceremonies kick off on Oahu, and the festivals and last through mid-October with each island holding its own celebrations.
Immerse yourself in Hawaii’s rich culture, and learn about the island’s unique music, history and dance, including the legendary hula which combines elements of all three. Other festivities include public block parties, luaus, live music performances, food booths and arts and crafts shows.
Nearly one million visitors attend the event, so plan ahead and get your Hawaii vacation rental booked soon. Visit Hawaii this fall and find out for yourself what Aloha really means.
