Some of Hawaii's best-known artisans, educators, cultural practitioners, speakers and entertainers come together each year for Celebration of the Arts, a multifaceted special event now in its 19th year at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. Slated for April 22-24, this year's festivities kick off with a ceremony of traditional chants. Throughout the weekend, visitors and residents can interact during hands-on art sessions, demonstrations, films, cultural panels and music and dance performances. The celebration's luau showcases foods of traditional Hawaii intermingled with the contemporary cuisine of hotel chefs. An after-hours party in the Alaloa Lounge features impromptu performances in an island-style jam session, and an Easter brunch adds to the merriment. Clients can book a room package timed with all the fun.
