5th Annual Kohala 'Aina Festival
The Kohala 'Aina Festival marks the beginning of the makahiki season with a celebration of local harvest, young farmers, and the growing movement for island-wide food sovereignty. This year's festival features a line up of international and local musicians, educational workshops, a 100% locally grown Hawaiian style feast, and family friendly keiki activities.

MUSIC! Live musical entertainment from Nahko, a nationally renowned folk/rock singer with Hawai'i Island roots, and Hawai'i's own Ooklah The Moc. Other performers include Cas Hayley, Tubby Love, Kaahele and the Isness, DJ Conscious Riddims and other special guests. There will also be hula from Halau Kukui Aloha o Kohala, African Drum and Dance and a Keiki Tent with fun, interactive activities for all ages.

EDUCATION!  This year's educational workshops are centered around a Permaculture Convergence featuring rotating workshops by island-wide experts in Soil Fertility, Beekeeping, Seed Saving, Community Design, Plant Medicine and Hawai'ian Culture. Attendees can participate in workshops and visit informational tents throughout the day to learn about and discuss critical issues facing today's small farmers. This year, HIP Agriculture will be introducing the first annual Young Farmers Forum, an event bringing together island youth and working farmers to explore sustainable agriculture as an economically viable career path.

ISLAND CUISINE!  This year HIP Agriculture is preparing to feed 1,000 people with a 100% locally sourced menu. This traditional Hawaiian feast will feature the talents of several well-known island guest chefs including Casey Halpern, Executive Chef at Cafe Pesto, Allen Hess, Chef de Cuisine at the Mauna Lani Canoe House and Executive Chef Donna Maltz. Fresh coconuts, juices and snacks will be available at the Niu Lani Juice Bar.


The Kohala 'Aina Festival is the annual fundraiser for the Hawai'i Institute of Pacific Agriculture. 100% of proceeds raised support youth education programs, residential farmer trainings and community education projects island-wide. Donations are tax-deductible through the fiscal sponsorship of the North Kohala Community Resource Center, Hawi, Hawai'i.
