ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Started in 1982 by the Hawaii United Okinawa Association, the Okinawan Festival celebrates all things Okinawan and brings together Okinawans and Okinawans-at-heart. Our theme of "Sharing Uchinanchu Aloha" is embedded in everything we do.  Join us for the ono food, beautiful performances, educational cultural exhibits and much more.
