To honor Princess Ruth Keʻelikōlani’s 196th birthday we’re celebrating with Day at Huliheʻe Palace during ka Mahina ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, Hawaiian Language Month!
Princess Ruth Keʻelikōlani was a strong supporter of the perpetuation of Hawaiian traditions, culture, and language. Although well-educated and proficient in the English language, she conducted all business and correspondence ma ka ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i, requiring all non-speakers to obtain a translator.
This year’s festival will be held virtually on Saturday, February 12, 2022. Traditionally, this annual community festival opens the Palace and grounds to the public, welcoming kamaʻāina and visitors to celebrate Hawaiʻi’s history, culture, and music, while supporting local vendors and artisans during a day at the Palace.
Stay tuned for more information!
