World Invitational Hula Festival

Honolulu, Hawai'i
November 9th through the 10th


World Invitational Hula Festival 2013

We have been blessed with twenty-one outstanding Hula Festival years since 1992.  We have had participants from the world over come here to Hawai῾i to join us in celebrating the unique cultural language of HULA and to share their feelings of appreciation and ALOHA with others from around the world.

Now, in 2013, we are in a year of transition and so are not having a festival here in Hawai῾i, but are planning for the expansion of this event.  In the future, we plan to open in Europe with an event similar to what we offer in Japan.  We are in our third year of great success in Japan with an event that is growing under the direction of our Japan Producer, Kazuko Makana Selig.

Our World Invitational Hula Festivals have proven to be not only educational as well as entertaining, but also have brought thousands of people to Hawai῾i over the years, which is good for our local economy.  As Founder and Executive Producer of this event, it is time for me to look forward to the next generation of hula enthusiasts, to take over for the future growth and development of this enthusiastic event.

Participants have come here from Spain, the Netherlands, France, Canada, Mexico, Columbia, Germany, Samos, Poland, India, Africa, Korea, the Philippines, Easter Island, Iran, New Zealand and the Mariana Islands.

States that have participated include: Alaska, California, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Texas, New York, Rhode Island, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., American Samoa (U.S. Territory) and Guam (U.S. Territory.)  All seven of our inhabited Hawaiian islands have participated. 

We will have more information as time goes on in this new and vitally important direction.
