– is held on Kauai’s south shore every year in July. It is to celebrate the many ethnic groups that came to Hawaii to work on sugar plantations, and the Hawaiians who welcomed them. They are celebrated through music, dance, costumes, and food throughout this ten-day festival. 2019 marks the 34th year for Koloa Plantation Days, a celebration of Hawaii’s sugar industry and heritage. The Koloa plantation was founded in 1835, the first in the islands. The birth of the sugar industry shaped the lives of everyone in Hawaii forever. Although the mill and fields are idle in Koloa and virtually all of the state, many people in Hawaii are former workers or descendants of plantation workers who came from many lands. Koloa Plantation Days brings people to Koloa and Poipu on Kauai’s south shore to celebrate aspects of the plantation lifestyle that we are still connected to.

Once a year with the King’s Parade, Hawaii celebrates one of the greatest kings in it’s history: King Kamehameha. He is remembered for uniting the islands in 1810. He was a fierce warrior, and for ushering in an era of peace, prosperity, and unity to the Hawaiian Islands we know today. King Kamehameha Day is a celebration of everything he stood for and accomplished for the islands. This June will mark the 147th celebration of King Kamehameha, and each island celebrates the day a little bit differently.
In Kauai, we celebrate with the fabulous King Kamehameha Celebration Floral Parade in Lihue starting at Vidinha Stadium and ending at the lawn of the Historic County Building on Rice Street. The parade celebrates the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) traditions and is full of beautiful colors and dancers.
After the parade, there is a Hoʻolauleʻa (Hawaiian festival) on the lawn of the Historic County Building. There will be hula dancers, live Hawaiian entertainment, delicious food booths, craft vendors, and more!
The event is free, and is a great experience for the whole family. If you’re in Kauai on June 8th, we highly recommend you attend.
