This event has been postponed to Saturday, August 8. 

The Color Festival Hawaii is intended to be a celebration of life, representing the diverse colors of life and the vibrancy of community. Imua Family Services, along with their partners, sponsors, musicians, and vendors, has announced a rescheduled date for the Color Festival Hawaii. 

The goal is to come together at a time when we can celebrate our connected humanity, inclusive of ages and abilities—a pure representation of the rainbow that truly is Maui and Hawaii. We hope you will plan to join us on Saturday, August 8, for this joyous celebration and igniting of colors.

 
All patrons with tickets in hand for the April event date need to return them to the Box Office to exchange for updated tickets reflecting the new date. If you are unable to attend the new date, you will need to return your tickets to the Box Office for a full refund.
 

In the spirit of inclusion and celebration if the beauty of diversity and the uniqueness of each and every child and person, this spectacular and colorful event is a modern American version of the traditional Indian Holi Festival, a thousand-year-old ritual of throwing and applying of colored powders on friends and family, which gives the holiday its common name, “Festival of Colors.”

Enjoy energetic, nonstop, live music for dancing from the opening Special Children’s Hour with Uncle Wayne & the Howling Dog Band to Brown Chicken Brown Cow, Ekolu, DJ Boomshot, and Anuhea, along with special guest appearances—all leading to the throwing of colors!

Enjoy some of Maui’s best food trucks and sweet treats as well. The message behind a color festival is “inclusion,” that we are all under the same rainbow, living and celebrating life together.

Imua Family Services is proud to bring to the Color Festival Hawaii to Maui as a friend-raiser, a family-friendly gathering, and a place for all children to be included. 

Event Sponsors include, SongDivision, Alaska Airlines, MauiNOW, PMG, Yelp, MauiTime
 

 HELPFUL TIPS:

  • Wear white so you can leave colorful!
  • Wear comfortable shoes/sandals you don’t mind getting full of colorful powder
  • The powder is just colored cornstarch and most of it will just blow right off unless you get wet
  • We suggest you to wash your clothes right after the festival
  • Protecting your eyes with sunglasses or goggles is strongly recommended
  • Bring a dust mask or bandana, especially for those with respiratory issues
  • Bring plastic bags for your dusted clothes or to cover your car seat after event
