Jack Johnson's Kokua Festival was held on Earth Day weekend
every year between 2004 and 2008. The event took place
either at the Waikiki Shell on Oahu or on the island of Maui
and it sold out quickly every year because of the top entertainers
who appeared. The Kokua Festival is taking a break in
2009 but the organizers are hoping to bring it back in 2010.
Instead of a Kokua Festival in 2009, the Kokua Hawaii Foundation
is hosting an auction that will begin on April 22, 2009
and continue through the end of May. For more information see
