“Made in Hawaii Festival is looking forward to another year at Ala Moana Center supporting Hawai‘i’s local businesses,” said Lauren Zirbel, president of the Hawaii Food Industry Association, the entity which produces the festival. “We’re also excited to offer all-day access passes for those who want to browse the thousands of Hawai‘i-made food, crafts, apparel, and more, on their own schedule.”
The festival will be held in Ala Moana Center’s Ewa Wing, Level 3 next to T-Mobile. The area will be transformed with nearly 400 exhibitors showcasing thousands of locally-made products including food, books, fashion, handmade crafts, jewelry, and much more.
This year the festival welcomes the return of Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winning entertainment including Melveen Leed, Kawika Kahiapo, Hoku Zuttermeister, Robi Kahakalau & Kala‘e Camarillo, and more. In addition, local chefs including Randy Bangloy (Eating House 1849), Jason Ichiki (Roy’s Waikiki), Jason Yamaguhi (Mugen), and more will return to demonstrate their favorite island recipes for audiences. Those attending will also be able to sample products from food exhibitors.
Attendees can purchase a two-hour timed entry pass for $13 or an all-day access pass for $35, which allows for easy access in and out of the festival area for an entire day. Tickets will be available starting Oct. 1 and can be purchased at www.MadeinHawaiiFestival.com.
