The Merrie Monarch Festival was started in 1963 and the Festival is in full swing right now! The main goal of the festival is the perpetuation, preservation, and promotion of the art of hula and the Hawaiian culture. The festival is the world’s premier forum for the display of ancient and modern hula.
