You may wonder why this event is called Kokua Kailua. Kokua is a Hawaiian word, meaning to help others. In a deeper sense, it means to give freely of your time and energy to help better the lives of others and your community. The spirit of this festival is to help one another and to bring everyone together to keep improving the Kailua-Kona community.

Strollers along Alii Drive will be able to connect with merchants showcasing carved Koa wood art, natural oils, handmade soaps, jellies and jams, clothing items, food, jewelry and more, all promoting Hawaii made products in historic Kailua Village. In keeping with the spirit of kokua, characterized by kindness and a desire to be of help, come support the history, culture and celebrated artisans at Kokua Kailua in historic downtown Kona.

One of the highlights of the Kokua Kailua event is the live entertainment. There are local musicians and performers who come out each month and perform for event goers to enjoy. The entertainment is spread out among the vendors along Ali’i Drive. During the Christmas holiday, this event is very large and includes even more entertainment, concerts, and additional craft and art vendors.
