Join us March 11 and 12, 2023

Know Before You Go!

The Arizona Aloha Festival is a FREE event.
Every wonder how we keep it that way?
We here on the Festival Team want everyone to experience the warm hospitality and respect
that is known as the 'aloha spirit.'
"Free" means everyone can come and the whole family is welcome.

Explore the ways you can help to keep it that way.

Did you get a chance to complete our survey?
If yes, thank you! If no, please share using this form.
We will be accepting responses
until Wednesday March 27. Thank you!

Cover Photo Contest time on Facebook!

Send us (through message) your unedited photos individually with a short description and photo credit. We will post the photos daily (or as often as we can) in our 2023 Arizona Aloha Festival Cover Photo Contest Album.

We will not edit or alter the photos. The photo with the most reactions (including likes!) at the end of the Contest time will be our cover photo until next year (comments don't count, but they sure are fun to read!).

Things to keep in mind:

Send your photos individually, not just tag us! - We do give photographer credit, so logos or names on the photos are not necessary (and are not eligible to win). By sending your photos, you give us permission to use your photo in promotions (such as on our website, annual report, or social media) with credit, of course.

We won't sell your photos because, frankly, that's not cool of us to do. - There is usually some great competition! We encourage you to tell all your friends to react to your photo!

Contest is open until March 27, 2023 at 9pm Arizona time.

Keiki! Don't lose your Parents!

You know how it is. You are lookng around. Maybe you're watching a performance or stepping over to see the canoes. Or checking out that booth with the cool stuff inside. Or following that person to see what the enticing food smell know, stuff.

And then it happens! You turn around and POOF! Your adult has wandered!

No worries! Go to the nearest Stage or Police Officer and tell them you've lost your parent. Show them the phone number on the band on your wrist, and they will help find that wayward Adult!

Some say it's all about the food...
The first thing you notice are the smells. Wonderfully delicious smells. Then the smoke wafting from here and there. What's that person carrying? That looks GOOD!

This is the food of the islands...

Bring cash (or find our ATMS) because these aren't fast food chain restaurants! And many don't take electronic payment or credit cards.
