Kauai in May, 2016: Festivals, Events and More

Kauai in May, 2016, has plenty of festivals and events to offer the vacationer.

This beautiful island is nicknamed “the Garden Isle” due to the lush, tropical Hawaiian rainforest that covers much of its surface. But, in addition to exploring that nature, there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy.

Visitors to Kauai in May, 2016, will have the opportunity to experience a few unique festivals and events…so make the most of your vacation!

Here are just a few to get you started:

MoKan NoKan World Inner Motion Roadshow–Dance Extravaganza

MoKan and NoKan are inspirational puppets based on the Chinese symbol of the yin and yang. These two puppets are designed to reach out and inspire both children and adults.

The MoKan NoKan World Inner Motion Roadshow brings 80 dancers and musical prodigies from Kauai Dance Center to create something more than just a “dance extravaganza.”

This “show of the year” tells a story – written especially for this show – with music, dance, singing, acting, and multimedia.

The show takes place on Saturday, May 14, from 4 to 6 pm at Kauai’s Marriott Resort.

When purchased online, tickets cost $20 for general admission and $10 for children, students, and seniors. Children under 2 can enter for free when they share their seat with an adult.

You can purchase tickets online at www.WorldInnerMotion.com, or at a select

The Banana Poka Round Up

The Banana Poka Round Up, as last year’s website says, is a “forest education fair with a funny name.” The fair is fun – and educational – for the entire family.

Unlike many fairs, this one focuses on educating attendees on an invasive plant species, the Banana Poka. The pink-flowered plant threatens the diversity of the Kauai ecosystem. Kauai government, businesses, and organizations have come together to fund this event in an effort to teach children and adults about this plant and its effect on the local environment.

In addition to Banana Poka basket-making, there will be games, environmental exhibits, drawings, crafts, races, Hawaiian entertainment, a silent auction, and a crowing contest at noon.

Visitors will be able to tour the camp from 12-1pm. This free-to-the-public event is funded in part by Kauai County, along with various local businesses.

The fair takes place at the Civitan Conservation Corps Camp at Kanaloahuluhulu Meadow in Kōkee State Park on Saturday, May 29, from 10am to 1:30pm.

Princeville Night Market

The Princeville Night Market is a monthly market that takes place on the second Sunday of each month.

This festival takes place at the Princeville Shopping Center and has plenty to see and do.

The market features over 40 local artisans, craftsmen and women, artists, photographers, and more. From jewelry to pottery to painting, you’ll certainly be able to find a souvenir to bring home.

You can also expect live music performances from local musicians. Also, make sure you bring your appetite, since there will be more than enough food to fill your stomach.

This May, the festival will take place on Sunday the 8th, from 4 pm to 8 pm.
