First Friday Art Events
First Friday Art Walk in Holualoa
For some, Friday symbolizes the end of the work week and the beginning of the weekend, for artisans in Holualoa and Hilo, the first Friday of the month gives an entirely new meaning to the expression T.G.I.F.
Located in the heart of Kona, coffee country, perched along the emerald rise of the Hualalai Volcano, you will find the enchanting township of Holualoa. Within this eclectic community is a gathering of artisans celebrating the beauty of the Big Island through varied mediums for locals and visitors to enjoy.
If you are looking to escape the humdrum resort atmosphere, First Friday Art Walk in Holualoa is a jamboree of art, music and creative food vendors. If you want a beverage or dinner, the Holuakoa Restaurant is fantastic, just plan plenty of time, because they don’t rush their style of perfection.
