Merrie Monarch Hawaiian Culture Enrichment

2015 Workshops

April 7-10, 2015

In April, the week after Easter, the highly anticipated Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and Competition in Hilo will be under way. During this special week, ‘Imiloa will offer a  showcase of musical performances and cultural presentations in support of the Merrie Monarch Festival, providing visitors to Hawai‘i and its residents an opportunity to learn about the history and cultural significance of hula and its practitioners. All showcase sessions cover a wide range of hula topics. 
 
To ensure your place, we recommend that you purchase tickets in advance. Pre-sale tickets to each session are $8 for members or $10 for non-members. Only a handful of tickets will be available on the day of the performance (priced at $15). Ticket pre-sales start Tuesday, March 10th for the events being held April 7-10, 2015 so be sure to mark your calendar as we expect to sell out! All admission proceeds benefit enrichment programming at 'Imiloa. Tickets are non-refundable. Pre-purchase tickets at the 'Imiloa front desk or by phone at (808) 969-9703.
