0

The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs aged by time and elements. But, it is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns that make it timeless.

Kaua`i’s one-of-a-kind culture is celebrated in several festivals throughout the year — and visitors are encouraged to participate. Whether a group is looking to try new food, listen to authentic music or learn cultural dances, there’s a festival to make it happen. Plan a group escape to Kaua`i and discover the undeniable allure of the island’s festivals.
