Gabby Pahinui Waimanalo Kanikapila

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Saturday, April 20: 
Gabby Pahinui Waimanalo Kanikapila.
  This annual event was initiated by Cyril Pahinui as a tribute to his father, Gabby Pahinui, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to become one of Hawai`i’s premier celebrations of Hawaiian music. The festival celebrates the musical heritage of Waimānalo, Gabby’s April 22nd birthday, Cyril’s April 21st birthday, and offers a special recognition of Cyril. Designed after gatherings remembered from Cyril’s childhood days, when weekends at the family’s home on Bell Street in Waimānalo were a continuous kanikapila. As in those days, the event attracts more than 100 musicians and gives thousands of fans an opportunity to witness some truly unforgettable moments, amazing performances, and one of a kind all-star jams by some of Hawai`i’s greatest musicians who get together to play music in the park.  This free event also includes educational and informational booths, music workshops, cultural demonstrations and displays, lomi lomi massage, food booths that support athletics and community groups, and some arts and craft vendors.  Waimanalo Beach Park, 41-741 Kalanianaole Hwy., Waimanalo. 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information call (808) 896-1911.
