Congratulations to our 2020 Kokua Awardee,
Bunny Halvorson

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 will be held at the 2022 Festival.

Did you miss the 2021 livestream Festival?
It was recorded and you can still view it on our Facebook page.
You can also see it on our YouTube channel!
One comment (shared during the event by Joe Agor in Hawaii) summed it up perfectly:
"Aloha is like the wind. Even though you can't see it, you can feel it and it is always around."
Mahalo for all those attending for our very first virtual event!
(NOTE: Part of one performance inadvertently used copyrighted songs and the sound was muted by Facebook during that performance on the recording. Our apologies.)

Our 2019 Annual Report is a great place to remind yourself what makes Festival Fun!
Check out the pictures and facts from our last year pre COVID as 2020 was cancelled. Please note this is a pdf file, so it takes a while to load...

Do you ever wonder how we keep the Festival free?
It takes a lot of money.

We compete for grants and gifts by writing proposals. We look for Sponsors and appreciate that you visit them. We collect fees from our vendors. But that's never quite enough
. YOU help us too!
  • You buy our Hawaiian Vacation raffle tickets and teeshirts.
  • You buy soda and water from our booths.
  • You volunteer!
  • When you fly on Hawaiian Air, you use our Airline Discount Affiliate Code to save yourself some money. Miles earned are matched for us.
  • You make cash donations, especially at tax time.
  • And now, you Amazon shoppers can even help through our SMILE account!
So when it comes time to pay for the rental of the park; Police, Fire and Security services; the stages and sound; the pickup and haul off of trash (and we all like to eat, so there's LOTS of trash!); and all those tents and tables and chairs...we can do it without an admission fee!

We want the whole ohana to come, enjoy, learn about the rich cultures of the South Pacific, and have a lot of FUN! Share the aloha with us!
