Went to the Made in Hawai’i Festival to eat the free samples. (There’s actually a $4 admission fee.) This is one of the largest events at the Blaisdell Center, using both the arena as well as the exhibition hall. There were food items, coffee, jewelry, clothing, art, woodwork, and live entertainment. Everything is local. Here’s the massive list of exhibitors.
They were expecting 35,000 attendees over the course of the weekend. I didn’t expect all 35,000 to show up at the same time. The place was jam packed! It was a miserable experience for me, not being able to rush up & down each aisle. Definitely not my “cup of tea.”
For those who do enjoy going to craft fairs, this one must have been made in heaven….
