Returning to the MACC for a third year, the Color Festival Hawaiʻi brings back Maui singer-songwriter and musician, Anuhea.  The festival runs from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

As the headlining artist for this fun-filled and colorful music event, Anuhea will be joined in this year’s festival line up by Maui Island Reggae band Ekolu and West Virginia-based Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band, with beats courtesy of Maui’s own DJ Boomshot. Family favorite Uncle Wayne and the Howling Dog Band will be opening up the afternoon during the brand new Keiki Hour from 1 to 2 p.m.

The family-friendly friend-raiser music festival includes food trucks, vendors, activities for kids and the throwing of colors at the end of the day. The Color Festival Hawaii’s message is one of “inclusion” – that we are all under the same rainbow, living and celebrating life together in harmony.


Tickets for adults are $20 pre-sale, $25 day-of; children 6 to 16 are $15; and children ages five and under are free. Doors open at 12:30 p.m., and the event ends at 6 p.m.

Powdered colors are sold separately and are available for purchase inside the venue. Colors are made of cornstarch with FDA-approved food dye. No outside colors are permitted. Most participants wear pure white clothing that is then colored by the throwing of colors. For festival-goers looking to create the ultimate souvenir, official white event shirts will be available for purchase. Tickets will be available from the MACC Box Office starting March 3, 2020.

Imua Family Services is proud to be partnered with sponsors including Alaska Airlines, SongDivision, Maui Now, and Da Jam 98.3 FM.


Imua Family Services began in 1947 providing services to children with Polio in the Territory of Hawaiʻi. Today, 73 years later, Imua is still making significant impacts working with families and children through a broad scope of child development programs including its Infant and Early Childhood Services, Imua Autism Services, Imua Inclusion Preschool, Camp Imua and Dream Imua.
