Over the years, the Friendship Gala has become one of the highlights of the Honolulu Festival. Through this event, the Honolulu Festival Foundation offers a high-quality educational program to local students that contributes to their enhanced understanding and awareness of the global society.

At the Friendship Gala, the Best Contribution Awards are presented to the performers who have made a great contribution to building an international rapport. After the award ceremony, performers take over the stage and entertain the guests. You can enjoy the performance with some amazing food, which is served by Hawaii’s premier restaurants. This popular event is a great opportunity for you to make new friends with other guests from around the world as well as locals. We look forward to your participation!
