Monday (9/6)

CANCELLED

Mini Okinawan Festival

After serious thought, the Festival Committee has decided to CANCEL the Mini Okinawan Festival in-person event in light of the recent significant increase in COVID-19 case counts. Just on Sunday 8/1, we had 452 cases in Hawaii and 485 cases on Saturday 7/31, which was the highest single-day count to date. Much as we wanted to hold our first live in-person event, the health and safety of our members, volunteers, and the community are of the utmost importance to us and the biggest consideration for making this decision. In the spirit of wanting to do things the right way, we hope that you will still join us virtually and at our various drive-through events. 

What is CANCELLED:
- Monday, 9/6/21 - Mini Okinawan Festival In-Person event at the Hawaii Okinawa Center (including all food on Monday)
