Throughout the year, you’ll also encounter parades, street parties, food and craft fairs, concerts and family activities that honor every aspect of Hawaii’s diverse culture.


Annual Events

Some, like the Honolulu Marathon(December) and the Hawaii International Film Festival (October), draw visitors and participants from around the globe.

These events have a strong allure for visitors who want to get an authentic glimpse of Hawaii during their trip.
