This year’s entertainment features headliner Makana along with Cruz Control and past winners of the Keoki’s Ukes in Paradise competition for a fun family event and an exploration of the music which inspires our theme, Many Cultures, One Community.

Makana will be joined by Hoku award winning percussionist Lopaka Colon and Hawaiian music veteran Lono Kaumeheiwa, as well as special guest vocalist, Kaua’i’s own Estrella.
