About 4 Days of Aloha

4 Days Of Aloha is Vancouver, Washingtonʻs premiere event of the summer and serves as a benefit for local non-profit, Ke Kukui Foundation. The 4-day festival welcomes people of all backgrounds to join a celebration of Hawaiian arts and culture through various mini, and not so mini, events (see schedule here). Over the last two decades, 4 Days Of Aloha has attracted attendees from all over the world to participate in its exciting schedule of events, with a record attendance of over 43,000 people in 2019.

Each day of aloha brings something unique to the festival and with the endless festivities through the weekend, there really is something for everyone – from keiki (children) to kupuna (elders) – to enjoy. The schedule of events at 4 Days Of Aloha includes: Hula & Craft Workshops, Pāʻina, Concert in the Park, Hōʻike, Multi-Cultural Celebration and Aloha Fun Run.

 

Our History

What started as a family vision 20 years ago, has grown to be one of the most anticipated and sought after Polynesian events in the west coast. Ke Kukui Foundationʻs largest annual event – originally known as, ʻ3 Days of Alohaʻ  – was founded in 2002 by Deva Yamashiro and Victoria Holt-Takamine, both Native Hawaiian women.

Ke Kukui Foundationʻs 4 Dayʻs of Aloha has grown tremendously throughout its years in the Pacific Northwest. From its humble beginnings in a small school cafeteria to today, overcrowding Esther Short Park, the heart and vision of this festival remains the same. The dedicated team at Ke Kukui Foundation work hard all year long to continue sharing the aloha spirit in the Pacific Northwest. Learn more about the organizers of this event by clicking below.
