The 22nd “Honolulu Festival” was held during 3/11–3/13 mainly at their main stage Hawaii Convention Center, performing various events at Ala Moana Center and Waikiki Beach Walk as well. Kalakaua Avenue was blocked off for the Grand Parade on the last day and later, Nagaoka Fireworks from Niigata prefecture of Japan was set off to the skies of Waikiki Beach area to close the 22nd Honolulu Festival.

The popular “Craft Fair” was held on 12th and 13th where various regions of the Pacific Rim including Hawaii, Japan, Australia and the U.S. Mainland performed and displayed numerous traditional and modern dance and music to arts, crafts, and workshops. With the help of JTB Hawaii, “111-HAWAII PROJECT” also joined as a special booth.

At the booth, we introduced the local revitalization and social contribution activities the project has done, as well as the greatness of Made in Hawaii products to all the visitors and participants from all over the world that gathered to this festival. We served samples of our Iced 100% Kona Coffee, Mamaki Tea, and Uacoco during the event, while also selling the project products. The booth constantly formed a crowd and showed a very positive response.
