With the sold out success of its inaugural year, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival continues its tradition of bringing in world class entertainment to Hawai`i as well as continuing to support the local community through its charitable contributions.  With its goal of bringing in diverse talents from Pacific Rim nations, the festival hopes to continue its reach and popularity to the international community as well as the USA.

It is also the intent of the festival to highlight and feature many of Hawai`i’s own talented artists and musicians and, in the process, allow them the opportunity to share the stage with world class artists.
