Arts on Hawaii Island
Home to the annual Merrie Monarch Festival — the world’s most spectacular hula competition — Halau (hula schools) from each island perform the hula preserving the Hawaiian culture and art of storytelling through dance and music. Hawaii is rich with traditional activities that celebrate the local culture. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the beauty and art of hula. The Hawaii Island visual art world also thrives resulting in the many galleries and festivals, specializing in Pele-inspired and island-style paintings, sculptures and jewelry.
