ʻĀina Fest, previously known as Kohala ‘Āina Festival, is now in its 8th year! Born out of husband and wife team Dash & Erika Kuhr’s desire to share the abundant food and vast potential for healthy living in Niuli’i, ‘Āina Fest grows richer in offerings and attendance each year. This powerful & unique day-long event features a packed schedule of world renowned & local musicians, performing artists, hands-on land based education, Hawaiian cultural activities, keiki activities, yoga, arts & crafts vendors & an abundance of organically grown, farm fresh food.

Together, we rise up to celebrate and empower local farmers & the vibrant movement for island-wide food sovereignty. 100% of proceeds from the event support the three core pillars of HIP Agriculture’s programming: Residential Farmer Trainings, Youth Education & Community Events.
