Honolulu Festival Foundation has announced the sub theme!
We are very excited to announce its sub theme for the 18th Annual Honolulu Festival, “Bonding together, hand in hand.” It is most appropriate for the next Honolulu Festival as a number of Pacific Rim regions faced recent disasters and were able to overcome and support each other by bonding through cultural understanding.
