The Pacific Islanders of the San Francisco Bay Area offer their talents in music and dance during this FREE ADMISSION, two-day festival of arts held during the first full weekend of every August. Entertainment highlights include Pacific Islander music as well as Polynesian dance. The festival will also feature arts & crafts vendors, island cuisine, educational exhibits and workshops, and an `Ohana Korner with simple games for the kids!  This is an alcohol and drug free event.

Please help us spread the word!  We plan to have a flyer available soon.  Mahalo for your continued support!

Free admission!  A Great Family Event!

For safety and comfort, please leave pets at home.  Event Center policy does not allow them.  Service animals are always welcome.
