About the Hawaii Book & Music Festival: 
One of the most loved Events on Oahu is about to take center stage again right in the heart of historic downtown Honolulu.  The Hawaii Book & Music Festival is a celebration of all things imaginative through the art of storytelling and rich melodies.  The festival hopes to honor literature and music by engaging people to interact with the stories themselves.  

One of the ways that you can experience this interaction is by enjoying one of the many author readings and panels that the festival has to offer.  By doing this, the HBMF hopes to raise awareness about the ever growing problem of illiteracy in Hawaii.  By inspiring imagination while making memories, a conversation about real issues in the community can become open and honest.

The Hawaii Book & Music Festival will also feature live interactive shows like music and stage plays.  Plays are a great way to celebrate Hawaii’s rich and strong culture through the use of literature brought to life.  There are also plenty of events on Oahu at this much-loved festival that are perfect for children of all ages like the many traditional Hawaiian hula performances that are scheduled.

The continuous theme of the Hawaii Book & Music Festival is to honor tradition and to engage the community to have an appreciation for all things cultural and joyful.  While literature takes center stage with this festival, the music is not an afterthought by any means.  All of the musical performances embrace the Hawaiian culture and have a magical way of weaving in with the literature.  Watch as historic downtown Honolulu transforms to a unique and overall exciting adventure that is sure to give you a new appreciation for Hawaii’s rich heritage.
