Description

In 2017, Heiva I Kauai celebrates the 16th anniversary of a unique, exciting and colorful Tahitian dance and drumming competition. On Saturday and Sunday, August 5 and 6, from 9am to 5pm, come and enjoy balmy sea breezes and whispering palm trees at this community-sponsored, family-centered celebration of Tahitian culture at the Kapaa Beach Park (4-1464 Kuhio Highway). Participants from Hawaii, the Mainland and Japan, with a range in age from toddler to elder, perform solo and group competition and exhibition dances portraying legends and stories of Tahiti. Event admission is $6 at the door. Children age 6 and under are admitted free. Award-winning Honolulu Tahitian dance group Te Vai Ura Nui provides house drumming and exhibition dancing on both days. More than 40 vendors offer an extensive array of Tahitian and other Pacific Island gifts, jewelry, art, woodwork and clothing. Food vendors sell a variety of ethnic foods.
