How to watch this weekend’s virtual Honolulu Festival
Honolulu, Hawaii — The 2021 Honolulu Festival, like so many other events around the globe, was forced to re-invent itself after the coronavirus pandemic.
Initially scheduled to take place across Oahu over several days beginning March 12, The Honolulu Festival: Pacific Harmony Through Cultural Exchange reinvented itself as a television-only production that debuts on K5 on Saturday at 7 p.m.
The broadcast will re-air on KHNL on March 14 at 8 p.m., and again on KGMB on March 19 at 7 p.m.
This year’s festival will also be livestreamed at hawaiinewsnow.com/honolulufestival on Saturday at 7 p.m.
The festival usually draws thousands of people from across the entire Pacific area and bills itself as a “premier cultural event, promoting mutual understanding, economic cooperation and ethnic harmony between the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Rim region.”
