Upcoming Historical Hula Festival in Honolulu

The Prince Lot Hula Festival is the largest non-competitive hula event in Hawai‘i. The festival honors Prince Lot Kapuaiwa (later reigned as King Kamehameha V) who reprised the once banned hula in the district of Moanalua.

A historical and cultural treasure, Moanalua Gardens is one of the most beautiful places in Honolulu on the island of O‘ahu. Once a botanical garden, it is home to rare trees, native foliage and historic structures. The Hula Dancers will perform on one of the few remaining pā hula (hula mounds) in Hawai‘i.

The festival was founded in 1978 and now attracts up to 10,000 residents and visitors each year. You can also find the Prince’s summer cottage on the gardens‘ grounds.

The 33rd Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at spectacular Moanalua Gardens on Saturday, July 17, 2010, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
