Event Highlights

The 7th annual Mō‘ili‘ili Summer Fest is Saturday July 7th from 5:00pm to 10:00pm in the parking area of the Varsity Building on University Avenue as well as on Coyne Street fronting the parking lot. The Mō‘ili‘ili Summer Fest is a lively event held in one of Honolulu’s most historic and vivacious neighborhoods. Each year, thousands of guests dance in the Honolulu’s largest Japanese Bon Dance of the season, enjoy delicious foods and visit a rich array of area retailers and artisans.

Mō‘ili‘ili community organizations including the Mō‘ili‘ili Hongwanji Mission, Kamehameha Schools, Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaiʻi, Old Town Mō‘ili‘ili Business Association, Mō‘ili‘ili Community Center, Mō‘ili‘ili Neighborhood Board, the University of Hawai‘i, and other community groups come together to create this unique community gathering. 

This FREE event is a blend of a traditional Bon Dance celebration and a modern street festival. The Mō‘ili‘ili Summer Fest is important to us for its spiritual significance, value to the community, commitment to strengthening ties between all generations, and for fostering collaborations between local businesses, artisans, and community organizations. We have a great team because we all recognize the importance of reviving a sense of community in this dynamic area.
