Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival Kicks Off In August

This coming August, you can join in a family-friendly event in celebration of Hawaii’s precious hula dance during the annual Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival.

Every year this delightful event is put on by the Farden Ohana, Lahaina Hawaiian Civic Club and the Lahaina Town Action Committee as an ode to the late Kumu Hula Emma Farden Sharpe of Lahaina. As a highly respected Kumu Hula on Maui, Emma Kapiolani Farden Sharpe or “Aunty Emma” is known for her help in perpetuating the dance for the island’s youth along with her dedication to hula and Hawaiian culture in general.

Aunty Emma started dancing at the age of 15 under the guidance of Tutu Kauhailikua. She later expanded her studies under Joseph Ilalaole and Mary Kawena Pukui and eventually created this Maui-based Hula festival with Na Mele O Maui. Today her halau, Na Pua O Kapi’olani Hula Studio, and Napili Kai Foundation help to put on the festival each year and bring together community members and dancers to rejoice in all-things Hawaiian culture. Visitors should expect a day of exhibits, workshops, artisans and a celebration of a lifetime of achievement in the name of hula.

This year’s festival will be held from August 10th until the 12th from 9 am to 5 pm, near Front Street under the Banyan Tree. And if you happen to be in the neighborhood this fall and are also on the lookout for your next home in Maui, then let us help you along your journey. Sakamoto Properties have a wide-range of new listings available to search through.  From condo sales in Kapalua to homes for sale in Kaanapali, you are sure to find your next Hawaii real estate investment here!
