In-person Canoe Festival returning to Kualoa Regional Park!

Event scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, rain or shine

O‘AHU -- Ocean-goers of all skill levels are once again invited to venture out to Kualoa Regional Park to experience the Polynesian voyaging tradition during the 12th Annual Kualoa/Hakipu‘u Canoe Festival!

The Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation is proud to organize this annual event, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 5, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine.

The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this immersive Hawaiian cultural experience which includes: a variety of paddling & sailing activities, educational booths, navigation lessons, and much more. This year, we are paying special tribute to wahine way finders who are instrumental in the voyaging community, including addresses from Hōkūle‘a crew and Polynesian Voyaging Society members Ka‘iulani Murphy and Bonnie Kahapea-Tanner.

Mahalo to the other participating collaborators, including the: Bobby Puakea Foundation, Hawaiian Ocean Adventure, Kamehameha Schools, Kānehūnāmoku Voyaging Academy, Keahiakahoe Canoe Club, Boy Scouts of America Aloha Council, Windward Community College, Wounded Warrior Project, Navy Outdoor Adventures and Navy Single Sailors.

As a result of the festival, Kualoa Regional Park Campground A will be closed for camping from Friday, March 4 through Monday, March 7. Campground B will remain open, however campers should be aware that there will be a significant increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

This will be the 12th year this cultural voyaging event has been offered to our island community, with the event cancelled due to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and the event being offered virtually in 2021. Those virtual interviews are still available online on DPR's YouTube Channel:

For 2022, we hope to see you at Kualoa!
