Springs Preserve Ohana Festival

Take a trip to paradise in the heart of Las Vegas as the Springs Preserve celebrates the music, food and culture of Hawaii and Polynesia at the inaugural Ohana Festival.

Commemorating Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and highlighting the importance of ohana (family) in Pacific Island cultures, the event will feature performances by local hula halau, crafts and games for the keiki (kids), and plenty of ono grinds (great food).

The festivities will culminate with a concert by the multi-faceted Kalama Brothers, whose debut CD, “Keau,” was released under the Maui Tribe Records label and produced by “Uncle” Willie K. The album explores the brothers’ Hawaiian roots and honors their ohana, as they sing about those who’ve come and gone and those who are in their lives today.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 children for children ages 5 and older. Children ages 4 and under are free.
