On The Blog > Free Hula & Music Shows in Waikiki

There are a handful of venues across Waikiki that host live Hawaiian cultural performances, featuring Hawaiian hula (traditional dancing) and music. Thanks to their generosity, these hula and music shows are free to the public. They’re popular events, so we recommend getting there early to score the best seat.
