Comics and Culture Converge at the Hawaii Convention Center

The month of August featured a series of repeat popular events that brought in local and international attendees alike. We kicked off the month with Comic Con Honolulu, back at the Hawaii Convention Center for their fifth year. This event welcomes fandoms of all types and featured guests from comic, gaming, TV and movies plus local artists and vendors.This was another successful year for them, bringing in over 9000 attendees during their 3-day event.

Next up, we welcomed repeat Japanese incentive group, Daito Kentaku, back for their annual reception in our Kamehameha Exhibit Halls. Their 3000 attendees enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by our Executive Chef Hans Lentz. 

Finally, we are looking forward to the return of the Okinawan Festival from August 31 to September 1. As Hawaii’s largest ethnic festival, the Okinawan Festival promises to be a weekend full of delicious food, great entertainment and lots of fun for people of all ages! Last year, the festival moved indoors to the spacious and air-conditioned Convention Center which provided an opportunity to showcase additional activities and displays. They also had a record number of attendees estimated at 56,000! We look forward to welcoming them back and enjoying warm andagi and other yummy food offerings!
