King Kamehameha Celebration, 150th Anniversary. Call for Entries!
Juried art exhibit celebrating 150 years of Hawaiʻi honoring King Kamehameha, The Great.
On June 11th, 1872, Hawai‘i held its first King Kamehameha Day celebration. The holiday was decreed by royal proclamation in 1871 by King Kamehameha V, grandson of Kamehameha I.
