The Pacific Islanders of the San Francisco Bay Area offer their talents in music and dance during this FREE ADMISSION, two-day festival of arts held during the first full weekend of every August. Entertainment highlights include Pacific Islander music as well as Polynesian dance. The festival will also feature arts & crafts vendors, island cuisine, educational exhibits and workshops, and an `Ohana Korner with simple games for the kids!  This is an alcohol and drug free event.

Please help us spread the word by sharing and posting our Aloha Festival flyer or Aloha Festival poster!  Mahalo for your continued support!
