Description

On September 11, 1976, the Kalihi-Palama Culture & Arts Society, Inc. organized a festival to honor Hawaii’s last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. The day-long event was held at Aala Park and featured multi-ethnic dance performances, Hawaiian crafts demonstrations, a pageant of Hawaii’s moi wahine, and the first keiki hula competition. Over the next few years, the competition added the soloists and hula kahiko categories, a separate division for the keiki kane, and the Hawaiian language critique. Entering into it's 42nd year, the Kalihi-Palama Culture & Arts Society, Inc. is proud to present their Annual Queen Liliuokalani Keiki Hula Competition at the Neal S Blaisdell Arena.
