Mother's Day Events in Kona

Aloha mai kakou,

Mother's Day Weekend in Hawai‘i takes on special meaning at a number of events in Kona this weekend.

Hawai's's top recording artists will be taking center stage at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa on Saturday, May 7 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The annual Mother's Day hula and concert, "Mama, My Mama, I Love You" will feature Hoku Hanohano award-winners Pekelo, Na Palapalai and Amy Hanaiali‘i Gilliom. The $40 ticket price will assist a local hula halau to travel to Japan for a cultural exchange. The event includes a silent auction, plus food and drinks.

Nothing says Mother's Day like flowers, and the Kona Kona Orchid Society has just what you have in mind for mom at their annual show and sale this weekend. Taking place all day, May 6 - 7, at the Old Airport Pavilion in Kailua-Kona, the event features a bounty of prized varieties of orchids from around the world, everything from Cymbidium and Oncidium to Vanda and Epidendrum. In addition to beautiful florals, the show also includes orchid workshops and lectures, plus crafts vendors selling great gift ideas for mom, like jewelry, artwork and ceramics.

Celebrating Mother's Day, a hula and music concert takes place under the stars at Waikoloa Bowl at the Queens' Marketplace on Saturday evening, May 7. Gates open at 3:30 with the Ukulele Jam for Japan featuring Brittni Paiva, Colin John and more, followed by a roster of great Hawaii performers including singers Diana Aki, Teresa Bright and Jerry Santos. Hula halau will also be performing, including Kumu Hula Keala Ching's halau.

Your Holualoa Inn ohana will help you plan the perfect getaway for mom. Our Hawaii bed & breakfast offers a tropical retreat highlighted by beautiful Asian furnishings, meandering gardens, massage hale, swimming pool and sweeping Kona views.
