The Best of Kona Festival wraps all the unique and amazing aspects of life in Kailua Kona together for a one day festival to celebrate the coveted lifestyle we enjoy and want to share with fellow residents and visitors.

The Best of Kona Festival will be held at the Kona Inn Shopping Center oceanfront lawn on Saturday, April 16th from 11 am-6 pm.

The key aspects of the Festival will include vendors from: art/dance/music, fashion, health care and wellness, agriculture, real estate, educational institutions, pet services,  service clubs, and non-profit organizations including a variety of food vendors. 

The Festival was the largest free public event in Kona when we held it in February 2020! Then the pandemic made it impossible to hold in 2021. Although the 2022 event will be a more controlled and smaller event, it is poised to grow each year as more people experience the  fun, education, outreach and business opportunities it provides. Our sponsors will share in the success as we keep expanding the scope of the festival and reach wider audiences. We ask if you will join us and grow with us.
