“Queen Kaʻahumanu Center has been a beloved family gathering place with events and performances for generations,” said General Manager Kauwela Bisquera. “We are committed to promoting and perpetuating Hawaiian culture through live music and celebrate our Maui ʻohana every month throughout the year.”
