E como mai! Welcome to Hawaii! Get ready to immerse your- self in the unique aloha way of life here on the island as AAPD welcomes you to Honolulu and the iconic Bishop Museum found in between Mauka (the mountains) and Maka (the ocean).

Experience the true Aloha spirit and immerse yourself in the Hawaiian culture from ukeles in the Courtyard, live cultural experi- ences in the Atherton Halau & Bowman Halau Wa’a to the stun- ning exhibits of Hawaiian Hall. Explorers and wayfinders, discover the stars tonight in the J. Watumull Planetarium, and learn how the first Hawai’ians navigated to the islands. Check out the science center where you can learn how volcanoes first formed the eight islands that make up the Hawaiian chain.

Out on the Great Lawn, mosey your way around a fun culinary journey inspired by flavors and festivals of the islands, from trendy poke to traditional poi and a smoking huli huli experience. Don’t worry – we have not forgotten the SPAM. As the sun fades, the Aloha Fest Main Stage by Sunstar becomes electric with one of the hottest dance bands ever! That’s right ... this party just got started.
