Annual event showcases Pacific island culture, food and entertainment.

The City of Henderson continues its partnership with the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club to present the 19th annual Prince Jonah Kuhio Ho’olaule’a Pacific Islands Festival on September 12-13 at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 S. Water Street, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., daily. Admission and parking is free.

“Ho’olaule’a is one of Henderson’s most popular events,” said Andrea Primo, Director of the Cultural Arts & Tourism Department. “Every year thousands of people gather in the Water Street District to get a glimpse into what the island life has to offer.”

The Ho’olaule’a Pacific Islands Festival brings tropical island traditions, cuisine and entertainment to the mainland. Attendees will enjoy over 100 exotic food and craft vendors including a selection of unique culinary demonstrations, as well as two stages of live entertainment. Performances include an array of dance teams, hula groups and award-winning artists and bands, such as Kainani Kahaunaele and Las Vegas-based Ho’omanawanui.

This year, organizers have added a new cultural craft area to the event. Children are able to participate in several make and take demonstrations including the art of tea leaf braiding and stick instrument construction. Performers and demonstrations are subject to change.
