Discover Kualoa will take place on January 18, February 15 and March 15, 2014
HONOLULU, HI (October 21, 2013) – Locals and visitors alike are invited to unearth the mysterious arts of ancient Hawai‘i and enjoy the revelry of food, fashion, music and art at the launch of Discover Kualoa on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at Kualoa Ranch from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This family-friendly event, perfectly situated at legendary Kualoa Ranch in Ka‘a‘awa Valley of Windward O‘ahu, will also highlight the ranch’s significance in ancient Hawaiian history.
January’s Discover Kualoa will kick off a three-month season of festivals which will include two more Discover Kualoa events on February 15 and March 15. Every one of the three events will highlight a different facet of Hawaiian culture: January will bring to life the arts of old Hawai‘i, February will celebrate Makahiki Festival and March will honor both traditional and modern Hawaiian song and dance. Also, the three dates will be hosted at different parts of the ranch: January will be set in Moli‘i, February will be held in Ka‘a‘awa and March’s event will be in Paliku and the Concert Pasture.
All are invited to explore the natural wonders of Kualoa and learn more about Hawaiian history and the fabled Makahiki season. Kualoa was once regarded as one of the most sacred sites on O‘ahu—home to kings, refuge and training. Today, it is owned and cared for by the sixth generation descendants of Dr. Gerrit Judd. Discover Kualoa will be the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the historically noteworthy valley and partake in many other memorable activities and entertainment.
Tickets will be soon available online at www.hpetickets.com. More information will be released as the date draws near, including an event website.
Discover Kualoa is part of a larger campaign of events known as “Discover Our Islands” that was launched to recognize and honor Hawai‘i’s unique culture. Neighborhoods across the state — including Kaka‘ako, North Shore, Waikiki and Maui — hold similar events throughout the year, recognizing the unique characteristics and features of each area.
