Prince Lot Hula Festival

Celebrating its 46th anniversary this year, the Prince Lot Hula Festival is the largest non-competitive hula festival in Hawaii. The Festival will be held the weekend of July 15, 2023.

The Prince Lot Hula Festival was always intended to be a free gift of hula to the community. Dancers perform both kahiko (ancient) and auana (modern) styles of hula that features dancers of all ages and skill levels. Without the restrictions of competition, kumu hula are free to create whatever dances inspire them.

During his reign as Kamehameha V from 1863 to 1872, Prince Lot was known as a champion of Hawaiian culture and traditions. This included the revival of hula, which had been banned by a previous leader due to religious beliefs.
