Ashland World Music Festival
Friday, May 26, 3:35 - 4:05 pm
This Memorial Day Weekend, the Ashland World Music Festival invites you to reconnect with community and culture in a conscious, yet innovative way.
The 2021 hybrid festival features a live-stream main stage event highlighting culture-bearing musical artists, a virtual Heartbeat Stories, and a weekend of SoundWalks through Ashland’s park and city-scapes.
Our wahine from Papa Palapalai will be presenting a half-hour of some of our favorite hula kahiko dances.
The festival is FREE, and we encourage everyone to donate to the fundraiser for the UNETE Farm Worker and Immigrant Family Fire Relief Fund.
