Hawaii’s Oldest Food Festival Celebrates the Culture Behind Kona’s World Famous Cup of Coffee! Throughout the 10-day Festival, celebrate the harvest as Kona coffee farms offer a firsthand look at growing this world-famous crop, the coffee art scene fills with inspiration, and music and dance enrich cultural exchanges. Kona coffee and food events offer tastings, and hands-on cultural events help tell the story of Kona’s rich coffee history.

Schedule of Events:

10:00 am – 3:00 pm: UCC Hawaiian Konane Tournament & Cultural Games

UCC Kona will host the first annual ancient Hawaiian checkerboard game, played on a grid. The idea of the game is to jump over your opponent’s pieces and remove them form the board. When one player can no longer jump any of the opponents pieces the game is finished and that player has lost. Other Hawaiian cultural games include Ulu Maika.
