April 3rd -9th: The 150th Year Jubilee of the Royal Order of Kamehameha

This April, visitors to Hawaii will have a chance to see the Royal Order of Kamehameha I hold its 150th annual jubilee.

To mark the special occasion, the island will have a week-long celebration of incredible events and festivities. This event has taken place every year since 1865 when Kamehameha V first established the event to honor Hawaii’s oldest royal organisation.

The event includes documentary film screenings, Hawaii music, local crafts, farm to table goods, and an incredible closing ceremony of offerings and ballroom dancing.

It is currently taking place across three locations in Maui, the Hale Nanea Culture Center in Kahului, the Kamehameha Iki Park in Lahaina, and the Grand Wailea Resort in South Maui.
