There are many ways to support and celebrate your local Lei Day.
The first, and most important, is to
"make a lei, wear a lei, give a lei"
so that the history, heritage, and culture of this important cultural art form continues to live and grow.

The work of this festival continues year-round, providing cultural programs and classes in lei making and related topics, such as Hawaiian ethnobotany.

You can help to promote and preserve this art form in the following ways, and many more!

* Support the entertainers and businesses who support us *

* Purchase our fundraising items *

* Purchase advertising on this site *

* Become a vendor for next year *

And of course,
Attend the festival!
