“Chibariyo” is the theme of the Festival, meaning “do your best.”

The entertainment program will feature continuous Okinawan music and dance performed by homegrown talent from Maui, along with performers from Oʻahu.  Taiko and sanshin players as well as odori dancers will also take the stage.

There will be something for everyone at the Maui Okinawan Festival – even a craft fair featuring the arts, crafts and jewelry of vendors from Maui and Oʻahu.  Artifacts reflecting Okinawan history will be on view at the cultural display room.
