Polynesian Festival Returns to LB Labor Day Weekend

The celebraton of Hawaiian culture will also include a hula chant and competition.


The 18th Annual E Hula Mau® is bringing island culture to the Terrace Theatre August 31- September 2 with live performances, art, interactive workshops and Southern California’s only Hula and Chant Competition.

Enjoy a taste of the islands, craft your own lei or just take in the colorful sights at the three-day celebration of all things Hawaiian, presented by Na Mamo®.

A nonprofit dedicated to preserving Hawiian culture through education and community outreach since 1992, Nà Mamo® has presented to E Hula Mao for the last 18 years. 

Join the gathering held in the spirit of family, called Ohana, and learn more Hawaiian values in one of three cultural workshops, held in either the cultural village at the theater or at the Westin Hotel.
