The Arizona Aloha Festival is a FREE event.
Every wonder how we keep it that way?

We here at the Festival want everyone to experience the warm hospitality and respect that is categorized as the 'aloha spirit.'
"Free" means everyone can come and the whole family is welcome.

There's lots of ways you can help to keep it that way.

Visit 'How We Keep Festival Free' to find the many ways you can help.

There's lot more besides buying our teeshirts, soda, water, and Vacation Raffle tickets. Have you tried our Airline Discount?
Can you Volunteer to help? Do you shop on Amazon? Want to be a sponsor or a donor? It's all there to explore.

What was at Festival?
Where do I find out what's going on?

There's a whole page of information, maps, and schedules waiting for you to explore and plan your own Festival experience!

Let's see...there was shopping, eating, watching the performances, learning to play the ukulele, more eating, more shopping, dancing in a circle.
Hearing tales of old Hawaii, watching more performances, getting coco-nutty, learning to hula, checking out the outrigger canoes, exploring Micronesia, and did we mention shopping and eating?

How can anyone do all that in only one weekend?
