Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival

Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival

3 days of hula in Lahaina for the Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival August 12-14. Renown kumu hula, “Aunty Emma” made it her mission to perpetuate hula and the Hawaiian culture so she created the Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival, which started in conjunction with Na Mele O Maui, a choir contest between Maui county schools, grades K-12, and continues today. Aunty was one of the founders of Na Mele and added on a hula festival in her name. Sadly it phased out in early 90’s. We honor the renowned, Emma Farden Sharpe, through a celebration of hula, auana (new) and kahiko (old), with a day of free keiki activities, workshops, artisans and a lifetime achievement award dedicated to a pillar in the hula community.
