Watch Merrie Monarch

The 59th Merrie Monarch Festival begins this Monday, April 18th through Saturday, April 23rd, and although many of us can not attend the live event being held in Hilo, we can certainly root for our Maui halaus by following the event online or on our TVs. The broadcast is rich in information about each performance. Huddle around the TV with the family to get a deeper understanding of Hawaiian culture and stories, while sharing reactions to the costumes and moving performances.

  • Monday, April 18th – Saturday, April 23
