Celebration of the Arts – 2018 Dates Coming Soon!

A winner of the prestigious Kahili Award from the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Celebration of the Arts is Hawaii’s premiere hands-on arts and cultural festival. Held annually, kama’aina (local residents) and visitors are invited to The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua to experience the “Hawaiian heart and soul” through interaction with artisans, cultural practitioners, workshops, films, hula performance, food and music. Hawaiian feather art, Ni’ihau shell lei making, Ohe hano iho (Hawaiian nose flute), printmaking, kapa making (Hawaiian bark cloth), primitive fired clay and many other interactive demonstrations are offered by more than 40 artists. The highlight of the weekend is the abundant Celebration Lu’au with both Hawaiian and Ritz-Carlton culinary talents collaborating for an abundant spread.
