Lyah Kama-Drake, event chair and museum education coordinator, said the goal of the festival is to feature one of the many cultures on Kauai. It is a great opportunity for people of all ages to learn and have fun.

“We want to share our cultures with our visitors as well as our community,” she said.

The annual event is usually attended by several hundred people. It is free for Kauai residents and visitors receive discounted admission.
