Join Us For Our 2021 Virtual Festival!
We learned a lot in 2020 as we created our first ever Virtual Okinawan Festival. This year, we will continue our virtual format for the continued safety of our community. HUOA will continue to strive to bring you the best our culture has to offer with all the entertainment, singing, dancing, interviews and fun videos from the comfort of your own home. We will also be celebrating Okinawan FEASTival and encourage you to pre-order food from your favorite Okinawan-owned restaurant.
In an effort to elevate the experience, we will also have a number of drive-through food orders and small in-person events. Be sure to check with your HUOA club and this website for more details.

You can watch the virtual Okinawan Festival on our HUOA YouTube channel or on our HUOA Facebook or Okinawan Festival Facebook pages on Saturday, September 4 from 2pm - 5pm and Sunday, September 5 from 2pm - 5pm.
We will also be airing a special one-hour shortened version of our Festival on KHON on Saturday, Sept. 4th from 7 pm re-airing on Sunday at 8pm.
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.
