The 67th annual Hō‘ike, an event that celebrates Hawaiian dance and culture, takes place Saturday, April 16, at the LaSells Stewart Center on the Oregon State University campus.
Formerly known as the Lūʻau, organizers said the name changed this year to more accurately represent the event, which focuses on the performances, although food will continue to be a part of the fun. The word hō’ike in Hawaiian means to demonstrate one’s knowledge.
The title of this year’s hō‘ike is “Ke Au O Ka Hula, Hula Over the Years.” It will focus on the history of hula and Hawaii.
Doors open at 3 p.m. The show begins at 4 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for the public.
Guests will be provided with a bento box dinner after the show. The menu includes vegetarian options.Tickets are available for purchase online.
