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 5th Annual AlohaFest Toronto will take place rain or shine on Saturday July 27th , 2019 from

11 am to 7 pm at Mel Lastman Square, Toronto and will include dance and musical

performances, food and crafts.


Over the past four 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 

Polynesian culture.
