Event Summary

What happens when CIAO meets ALOHA? Cialoha!

 

Although Hawaii is halfway across the globe from Italy, bits and pieces of Italian food, culture and history have found their way to our island home.  

Festa Italiana Hawaii aims to celebrate the intersection between Hawaii and Italy by providing a variety of authentic Italian and Italian-inspired experiences and flavors offered by Hawaii and Italian businesses and restaurants that will transport you from the heart of the Pacific to the boot of Italy.  

Festa Italiana is Hawaii’s only Italian Festival and more importantly, the world’s only celebration of Cialoha [pronounced "Ciao-loha"].

In addition to the free-entry Street Festival, Festa Italiana features a ticketed VIP experience called "Passaporto Italiano."
