Hula Arts

Hula Arts at Kīlauea Programs.

Since 1980, Volcano Art Center (VAC) has continually sponsored a variety of award-winning activities and workshops that expose participants to aspects of the rich Hawaiian culture from both the Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village and the VAC Gallery inside of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park (HVNP). Funding provided by Hawai‘i Tourism through the Community Enrichment Program.


Hula hālau from around the country come to HVNP to share this traditional form of hula and chant while facing Halemaʻumaʻu crater, the sacred home of the volcano goddess Pele, in these free, interpreted outdoor performances. For spectators, experiencing ancient style sounds, rhythms, and dance in the natural setting of Kīlauea volcano is authentic and quite extraordinary.  Hula Kahiko performances take place one Saturday each month, 10:30 – 11:30am.    Learn More >>
