The Mō‘ili‘ili Summer Fest celebrates historic Mō‘ili‘ili and the Obon season on Saturday, July 7 from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. at 1100 University Ave. Located on KS lands, on the former Varsity Theatre parking lot and Coyne Street, the annual event is a modern street festival alongside Honolulu’s largest Bon Dance and highlights the cultural diversity, history, and businesses of Mō’ili’ili.
Kamehameha Schools in partnership with the Mō‘ili‘ili Hongwanji Mission and other community organizations have come together to deliver this lively event for the community. KS supports community building events for a thriving Hawaiʻi.
In its seventh year, Mō‘ili‘ili Summer Fest has grown into a dining, shopping and family friendly event destination. In addition to the parking lot of the Varsity building, food trucks fill Coyne Street between University Avenue and Kaialiu Street. Over 25 popular food trucks from “Street Grindz” will be serving up delicious food. Families can also enjoy keiki games, cultural activities, DIY projects and shopping from local retailers and pop-up shops.
Free parking and shuttle service will be available from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa to the event site and back from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. For more information please visit www.moiliilisummerfest.com.
