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.

Explore the 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 happens 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's 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?

Congratulations to our 2020 Kokua Awardee,
Bunny Halverson

Bunny is known for sharing her love and knowledge of hula and Hawaiian cultural practices across the wide community of the White Mountains (Lakeside-Pinetop and beyond.) For over 50 years (at home in Hawaii and transplanted here) she has danced and taught. She takes her dancers to schools, care homes, assisted living facilities, churches, and community and cultural events throughout the year as a service to her community. She teaches Hawaiian cultural arts freely to all who wish to learn. Auntie Bunny's lifelong mission is to serve others and her caring nature and selflessness is shared with all.
Bunny's award presentation was held Sunday at the 2022 Festival.
