The festival will take place on Saturday June 27, 2009, 10 am- 5 pm at the Hawaiian Cultural Center at 741 W. Smelter Street, Midvale, Utah.
In its 2nd year, the Hawaiian Aloha Festival will feature live music and dance with local Utah Hula Halau (hula groups), Polynesian dance/cultural groups and local Utah Hawaiian music talents. The Hawaiian Aloha Festival will also include Arts and Crafts from various local crafters as well as items from Hawai`i. A highlight for the festival will be its educational area, which will include classes every ½ hour on Hula, Language, Chant, Lei Making, Ukulele and more. Most precious to us all are our Keiki (children) who will also have an opportunity to participate. The Hawaiian Aloha Festival will have a special area for the keiki to enjoy activities. Moreover, do not forget the food; the festival will not be complete without a spread of island fare.
The Hawaiian Cultural Center, under the Ka Lama Mohala Foundation (KLMF), was established in 2005 with the mission of preserving and perpetuating all things Hawaiian. The Ka Lama Mohala Foundation is a proud sponsor of “Mo’olelo Ka Ho’owaiwai” [Stories of Enrichment] to help host this cultural event.
