Established in 1946 as Aloha Week, the Aloha Festivals is one of Hawai‘i’s most highly regarded and oldest cultural celebrations, held throughout the month of September, that shares the history and traditions of Hawai‘i and the unique spirit of aloha with both kamaʻāina (local residents) and malihini (visitors). The month-long celebration features the Royal Court Investiture, Opening Ceremony, Waikīkī Hoʻolauleʻa and culminates with the highly-celebrated Floral Parade.
