Hawaii's Annual Events & Festivals

The Festive Islands of Aloha

Throughout the year, you’ll also encounter parades, street parties, food and craft fairs, concerts and family activities that honor every aspect of Hawaii’s diverse culture.


Annual Events

Many of Hawaii’s most memorable celebrations occur annually. Some, like the Honolulu Marathon(December) and the Hawaii International Film Festival (October), draw visitors and participants from around the globe.

These events have a strong allure for visitors who want to get an authentic glimpse of Hawaii during their trip.
