Free, two-day festival brings traditional Pacific Islander music, dance and food to the Ninth Island
The City of Henderson, in partnership with the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club (LVHCC), presents the 29th Pacific Islander Festival and Ho’olaule’a – a free two-day festival that celebrates the traditions and culture of Pacific Islanders on Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Water Street Plaza in downtown Henderson.
Festivities include live entertainment such as traditional island music and dance along with authentic food and beverages. In addition, this year’s event will include a Polynesian Village with island representation from Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Tahiti, Cooke Islands and Guam.
Festivalgoers can also enjoy crafts, explore the Keiki (children) zone, view cultural demonstrations and learn more about the culture and history of the Pacific Islands.
The celebration allows island transplants the opportunity to share the rich heritage and culture of the Hawaiian Islands with fellow native Islanders, Islanders-at-heart and the rest of the community.
The Pacific Islander Festival and Ho’olaule’a, founded and organized by the LVHCC, has grown into one of the biggest island festivals in the Las Vegas Valley since partnering with the City of Henderson in 2007.
This two-day event is one of LVHCC’s largest annual fundraisers as a portion of proceeds from vendor booths, raffles and beverages will benefit the club’s four scholarship programs.
