Maui Matsuri Kick Off

May 17 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Free

The first event of the annual Maui Matsuri is the Kick-Off celebration held at Queen Ka`ahumanu Center. The event, which is free to the public, will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019 and features taiko (Japanese drumming), classical and folk dancing from Maui’s local Japanese practitioners, a coloring contest sponsored by Sanrio Ka`ahumanu, and other entertainment. The evening concludes with an opportunity for all to participate in a practice session of Japanese Bon dancing. Beginners are encouraged to jump in to learn!

We’ll be sharing those dances again the following week during the highly anticipated Maui Matsuri Festival on May 25th!  Also, don’t miss this year’s International Culture Night at UH Maui College’s Pilina Building Student Lounge on May 24.
