Mauli Ola Festival

2015 Mauli Ola Festival

Flyer For The Mauli Ola Festival 2015The purpose of the Mauli Ola Festival is to create a living culture based upon New Paradigm spiritual principles.

We honor the convergence of ancient spiritual knowledge and the scientific paradigm, and we commit to live in the highest truth available to us without dogma.

We recognize that to be fully human, we need connection with our biological environment and we commit to connect to nature with the highest level of respect and care available to us.

We recognize that we are co-creating our experience together with all of life, and we respect the principle of free will, while committing to match resources with needs in the highest level of mutual benefit and cooperation that is available to us.

We commit to self-knowledge and in the interest of coexistence, we create niches designed to let our unique contributions shine out.

Mauli Ola Festival was created in support of the New Paradigm of global culture that is being birthed through spiritual awakening worldwide.

Through Mauli Ola, we can weave together a cultural conversation that cherishes the sacredness of all life, in the spirit of compassion and love.

Grammy nominated griot Youssoupha Sidibe, documentary filmmaker Shannon Kring, Na Hoku nominee Kanani Enos and percussionist Chris Berry, food healers Cherub, Jasmine and Rosey Silverstein of Sweet Cane Cafe Hilo, Lisa Mase of Harmonized Cookery, along with many others, are coming together in a heartfelt mandala offering of gratitude for this beautiful earth that we share.

Kona Brewers Festival 2015

Great Brew - Kona Brewers Festival 2015

Kona Brewers Festival 2015Each of 40 breweries from Hawaii and the mainland United States taps up two types of beer, ranging in style and flavor to delight the palate of every craft beer connoisseur. Chefs from 40 of the Big Island’s top restaurants serve sweet and savory tastes of island-style food, from fresh fish and barbecued meats to decadent desserts. A hula and oli (chant) kick off the event. A stage with live music entertains festival-goers throughout the day. The annual Trash Fashion Show, designed to raise environmental awareness, shows off attire made entirely from recycled material.

Tickets to the Kona Brewers Festival Main Event on Saturday are available in advance only. Cost is $75 and includes a commemorative event mug, eight four-ounce brew tasting coupons, unlimited samplings of gourmet cuisine and an afternoon of entertainment. Tickets are available for purchase online in late January at www.KonaBrewersFestival.com ($5 fee).

Since its humble beginning in 1996 to celebrate the creation of the Kona Brewing Company, the festival’s mission is to promote the craft brewing revolution in Hawai’i, encourage professional brewers and chefs to work together, and have a positive economic, educational and environmental effect on the Big Island community.

The Festival has grown to include a Brewer’s Pa’ina and Art Auction, a Home Brewers Competition, a benefit whale watch cruise and a 5/10k run/walk. Over the past 20 years, the Kona Brewers Festival has become one of Hawaii’s premier events and has raised more than $742,000 for Big Island non-profit organizations working on behalf of children and the environment.

Grow Hawaiian Festival 2015- Big Island

Kapa Beating - Grow Hawaiian Festival 2015Hawaiian farmers, traditional artists, and conservation professionals share their love for plants with the public through presentations, demonstrations, display tables, and hands-on activities at the 11th Annual Grow Hawaiian Festival at Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook on Saturday, February 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  The event is free and admission to the Garden is waived for the day.

At this event in the heart of the rural South Kona district of the Island of Hawaiʻi, festival goers walk through a lineup of cultural practioners working in tents scattered among a landscape of loulu palms, a‘ali‘i bushes, ‘awa plants, and other native plants and Polynesian crops.  At some tents, woodworkers display of their art, at others, kapa makers are beating wauke, and those watching may be invited to sit at a kua and beat along with them. There is a booth where botanists and entomologists wait for people to bring plants or insects to be identified. There are information booths about health care programs and dry forest restoration.  On stage, festival goers can watch a presentation on kalo growing in Kona, hear a short ‘ukulele concert, enjoy a lauhala hat show, and learn about native plant conservation programs in Kona.  This year speakers include National Tropical Botanical Garden director Chipper Wichman, Kona taro farmer Clarence Medieros, Jr., and Bishop Museum archaeologist Mara Mulrooney.   Hawaiian food will be available for purchase.
