I talk with Clifford Naeole about 25th Annual Celebration of the Arts at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. This much anticipated event will convene Hawaii’s most reputable artisans, educators, cultural practitioners, speakers and entertainers, April 14 – 16, during the 25th Annual Celebration of the Arts. The theme for the 2017 event is “Wahi Mahalo…A Universal Thank You” in honor of the 25th anniversary of Celebration of the Arts.
Opening ceremonies include traditional Hawaiian oli (chants) from Hawaiian practitioners while music and hula will be continuous throughout the weekend. Hands-on art, demonstrations, films, cultural panels, music and dance will act as the common ground to allow visitors and residents the opportunity to interact and enjoy the “Number 1 rated cultural event” according Modern Luxury Hawaii magazine. The Celebration of the Arts has also been the recipient of the coveted “Keep it Hawaii Kahili Award” presented by the Hawaii Tourism Association.
