AUGUST 27, 2016 - This year's 36TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL honors the park's centennial anniversary, and invites people of all ages to engage in authentic Hawaiian cultural practices and learn how native Hawaiians lived closely to the land as its stewards. Enjoy hula and music, watch skilled practitioners demonstrate their art, and try your hand at Hawaiian crafts. This year's festival will again include a BioBlitz, a fun and hands-on opportunity to observe and document the biodiversity that thrives in the lava flows and native rainforests of Kilauea Volcano, led by individuals and organizations at the forefront of conservation, science and traditional Hawaiian culture. The BioBlitz runs from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the cultural festival is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors can learn about the importance of conservation and biodiversity through interactive exhibits at the festival. Free to the public. For more information, call (808) 985-6011 or  visit
