Easter

Easter Sunday falls on April 9th this year. This naturally produces a whole ecosystem of celebration. 

Surrounding the holiday, many, if not most, restaurants and bars introduce specials in some form or another. Easter brunches are particularly popular, such as the Easter brunch at Duke’s Waikiki or Tiki’s Grill & Bar.  

You will have no problem finding and enjoying the variety of surprising features that come with the holiday if you’re in town for it - they are everywhere.

Earth Day

Another April holiday that always makes waves in Oahu is Earth Day (April 22, 2023). 

Once again, the celebration shows up all over. Numerous festivals and awareness-raising events are held on campuses, streets, beaches, and elsewhere.

Earth Day is a big deal in Hawaii, and perhaps that’s not surprising given that it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. If you’re in Oahu on or around the 22nd, expect to see lots of activity surrounding this holiday.

2023 Hawaiian Scottish Festival & Highland Games

Like chicken and waffles, it is admittedly a combination somewhere outside the bounds of expectation. But guess what - the variety of traditional Scottish music, dancing, and games with the warm sun and tropical Hawaiian air of Southern Oahu is seriously winning!

When: April 1, April 2; 9 AM - 4 PM
Where: 324 Kapahulu Ave, Honolulu (Jefferson Elementary School)
More Info: Hawaiian Scottish Association

Town Center of Mililani Spring Celebration

A very family-friendly way to start the month, the Spring Celebration at the Town Center of Mililani hosts Easter-themed attractions your kids will love. There will even be a petting zoo. And in case you’re wondering, with an assortment of surrounding restaurants and retail stores, there is plenty of fun for the grown-ups too.

When: Saturday, April 1, 10 AM - 1 PM
Where: 95-1249 Meheula Parkway, Mililani  
More Info: Town Center of Mililani - Spring Celebration

The Vibe Jazz Night at the State Art Museum

Yes, this once-a-month event is every bit as classy as it sounds. Held at the illustrious Hawaii State Art Museum in Honolulu, Vibe Jazz Night showcases excellent music among excellent artwork. As suggested by the title, it’s all about the vibe. Running from 6 to 9 on a Friday night would make for a fantastic date - but it is also open to all ages. The best part is admission to the galleries, and the show is entirely free.  

When: Friday, April 14th, 6 PM - 9 PM
Where: 250 South Hotel St, Honolulu  
More Info: Hawaii State Art Museum

28th Annual "I Love Kailua" Town Party

This town party fundraiser first started back in 1993. After a 3-year hiatus, for reasons you can probably guess, the party is back! If you don't already love Kailua, you will by the time you leave this all-encompassing festival of local food, art, music, shopping, and more.

When: Sunday, April 23rd; 11 AM - 4 PM
Where: 605 Kailua Rd, Kailua
More Info: The Outdoor Circle - Lani-Kailua Branch

We hope you find this introductory list helpful and exciting! As always, mahalo, and best wishes for your April visit!
