What Is the Aloha Festival?
The Aloha Festival is the largest festival in Hawaii and it is a celebration of Hawaii's music, dance, and history.

History of the Aloha Festival
In 1946 a group of former members of the Honolulu Junior Chamber of Commerce called the "Jaycees Old-Timers of Hawaii" founded an event called Aloha Week to honor the heritage of Hawaii and boost tourism during the slow fall season. The first event took place the following year, in 1947. In 1991 Aloha Week was expanded to the outer islands and renamed Aloha Festivals. The 60th annual Aloha Week/Aloha Festivals event took place August through October of 2006.

The Aloha Festival Today
Aloha Festivals events now include royal court presentations, parades, concerts, dance performances, street parties called hoolaulea, cultural demonstrations, and special celebrations on all of six the largest Hawaiian Islands. Events typically take place between August and October.

Aloha Festival Floral Parade
The highlight of the Aloha Festival is the floral parade that proceeds from the Iolani Palace in downtown Honolulu to Waikiki. The parade is approximately two hours long and it is one of the largest floral parades in the world.
