May Day by the Bay is a Community event that features the best in Hawaiian music performed by groups from Kauaʻi and throughout the state, including hula, cultural demonstrations by local practitioners, a Kauaʻi made products craft fair, displays by community groups, Hawaiian food and a Silent Auction.
We are proud to showcase the best parts of Kauaʻi – our people, culture and beauty. By shining the spotlight on the people in our community who are “Keeping the Culture Alive” you have the opportunity to have a unique, authentic, hands-on experience you’ll always remember.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn and play kōnane – Hawaiian Checkers, make a lei, and learn about lauhala, pounding poi and more. Shop in the Crafter’s Tent where all of the vendors are local and their products are made on Kauaʻi. Sample the food of Hawai’i, it’s a must to try lau lau, lomi lomi salmon and more. Support our event by bidding on an item at the Silent Auction, and see what our community groups are doing to make Kauaʻi a better place.
This is not a fundraiser as all monies donated and raised that day are used to perpetuate this great community event.
This is an alcohol/drug-free event supported by Hawaiʽi Tourism through the County Enrichment Program, County of Kauaʽi, kauaifestivals.com, HawaiianCheckers.com, and The Garden Island Newspaper.
