Event Information Now Available! Free Mobile Application Provides Instant Access to Hawaii Festivals and Events

Not sure of what to do this weekend?  With the new Festivals of Hawaii mobile phone application, kamaaina and visitors can easily access information on upcoming festivals and events throughout Hawaii.  The free app, which was recently launched by the HTA, allows users to search for events by island, location and type (such as cuisine, sports and education), through the GPS-based “Near Me” function that operates using Google maps.  

The first phase of the mobile app features HTA-sponsored festivals and events. In the future, the app’s searchable database will be widened, as well as formatted to be compatible with other platforms.

In just one week, the Festivals of Hawaii app received more than 2,000 downloads.  The app was even featured on an electronic billboard in Times Square, New York.

The free app can be downloaded on iTunes for iPhone, iPod and iPad devices.  Click here to download the application. 

With more than 100 HTA-sponsored festivals and events, this app allows visitors and kamaaina to celebrate the cultures and traditions that make our islands so unique.

However, you may notice these diacritical markings have been omitted throughout the website to ensure the best online experience for our visitors. recognizes the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaii and respectfully uses them in all communications beyond the online platform.
