The mission of AlohaFest Toronto is to educate the Greater Toronto community about the
Aloha spirit by uniting the multiple hula hālau (hula schools) and other Polynesian-inspired
organizations and businesses to showcase Polynesian culture, art and dance.
The 3rd Annual AlohaFest Toronto will take place rain or shine on Saturday July 28th , 2018 from
11 am to 7 pm at Mel Lastman Square, Toronto and will include dance and musical
performances, food and crafts.
Over the past three years, we have shared the Aloha spirit with over thousands of people
through engaging cultural performances, cool kids’ crafts and unique items available at the
AlohaFest Marketplace. AlohaFest Toronto is one of the few places in the city where guests can
indulge in both local favourites and unique Hawaiian treats. Our Social Media campaign
successfully engaged followers with relevant and interactive content such as contests and
Snapchat geofilters. Pre-event coverage by local media outlets including blogto.com,
Toronto4Kids.com and 680news.com drove steady traffic to each event throughout the day.
This unique event is sponsored by the Toronto-based Hālau Hula I Ka Lā ("Hula School in the
Sun”). With our ‘ohana (family) at Hālau Hula I Ka Lā, we strive to live the values and principles
of Aloha. We invite you to join us at Torontoʻs original and only united celebration of
Mahalo nui loa,
