Hawaii Volcanoes National Park’s annual Cultural Festival to go virtual

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is not letting the COVID-19 pandemic get in the way of its annual Cultural Festival.

Having normally been scheduled on the first Saturday in July for nearly 40 years, the event will instead be held virtually from 5 July to 11 July.

True to the festival’s legacy, Hawaiian culture will be shared with a wide audience, free of charge.

However, instead of gathering the community and visitors together in person, the park will share short videos and other manao (knowledge) about Hawaiian culture on social media.

“We are excited to share Hawaiian culture by adapting one of our most cherished park events so everyone can participate virtually and safely on our official Facebook page,” Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ranger Kekoa Rosehill said.

Those keen to join in on the festival fun can do so here.
