The `Ukulele Foundation of Hawaii invites you to be a part of the `Ukulele Picnic in Hawaii, to be held at Kaka'ako Waterfront Park. Talented musicians from Hawaii and Japan will perform on the hilltop stage overlooking Diamond Head, Honolulu Harbor, the ocean and mountains.

Upon arrival you will be reminded how blessed you are to live in Hawaii. Admission to the picnic is free. Along with the main stage non-stop entertainment, exhibitors will show ukulele related exhibits and merchandise and food vendors will be selling ono food and drink. Parking is available and free shuttle service will be provided from Waikiki. There will be inflatables for the kids and all are encouraged to bring mats for lawn seating.

Right next to the stage, there is Ehimemaru monument built in memory of 9 high school students who lost lives when U.S. Navy submarine collided their vessel in 1991. After the incident, people of Hawaii send heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved families of the victims. One Japanese was so touched by warmth of local people and wanted to have a peaceful event next to Ehimemaru monument to remember the souls of the young sailors. That is the beginning of Ukulele Picnic in Hawaii.

This event now spreads Hawaiian messages of"Peace","Friendship", and"Ohana" to all over the world. Please join and and enjoy peaceful time and incredible beauty of Hawaii.

Sincerely Yours,
Kazuyuki Sekiguchi
