Friday, July 27th 

Classic Hapa Haole Music Lives! Join us on Friday night for a throw back to this early modern era of hula & music. In keeping with the hapa-haole tradition, all songs within each category must be sung in English and the theme of the performance must be about Hawaiʻi. The era of music must be from the 1900 to 1959 period when classic Hapa Haole music was at it's prime. Prizes and recognition will be awarded to the winners. Winning soloists and groups will be showcased at the following day’s Hoike and Hawaiian Festival.  This is a FREE event!
