"It was a very well put together event. Everything was on point- from the variety of vendor options to the cultural classes. It honestly made me even more proud to be Native Hawaiian because of the awesome craftsmanship, cultural 'ike, and overall aloha spirit that was shown. I would highly recommend this event to anyone who is interested in the Hawaiian culture. Mahalo nui for putting together such a wonderful event." -Lacy Deniz
"We came to the event on Day 2 and were excited that the event was such a success on Day 1; the vendors were so energized about the event that they couldn't wait to do it again, and told us that they weren't sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by the crowds. We were also excited about how many different kinds of vendors and crafters there were, how enthusiastic they were to share their personal stories and give of themselves to anyone that wanted to learn. We can't wait for the next event to happen; and next time, weʻll be there on Day 1!" -Billy V
