Those who enjoy story-telling in all of its forms won’t want to miss the 14th annual Hawaii Book & Music Festival, taking place on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5, 2019, from 10 am to 5 pm both days on the historic grounds of Honolulu’s Frank F. Fasi Civic Center. Presented by Bank of Hawaii, this free, family-friendly event welcomes thousands of residents and visitors each year. Multiple pavilions and stages will feature 150 events throughout the two-day festival, introducing Hawaii’s multicultural heritage to the world through its literary and musical arts – and introducing Hawaii to new worlds of books and music beyond the Islands’ shores. Festival-goers can look forward to readings, presentations and book-signings by local, national and internationally published authors; music and hula performances by award-winning Hawaii artists and hula halau; storytellers, youth performers and other entertainment for the festival’s youngest audiences; the popular Bank of Hawaii Book Swap; and bookseller and publisher booths. A multi-ethnic, open-air food court keeps festival-goers fueled as they take in a weekend of books, ideas and music.
April 9 (Tuesday) 10:00 am - May 5 (Sunday) 5:00 pm
