Kona Coffee Cultural Festival



Hawaii’s oldest food festival, the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, proves that you don’t have to slow down with age. Maybe the coffee has something to do with it. Celebrating its 47th year, the fete will be featuring more than 40 events over 10 days that showcase nearly 200 years of Kona coffee heritage. Attendees will be able to participate in activities that commemorate the famous harvest and have as much of the black gold as their body allows. Signature event samplings include a colorful lantern parade through Historic Kailua Village, an art stroll through Holualoa Village, a Kona coffee inspired recipe contest, Kona coffee farm tours, art exhibits and a unique cupping competition where a recognized panel of cupping judges scrutinize the harvest from farms throughout the Kona Coffee Belt.

Additionally, this year the festival has selected freelance graphic designer Linda Huff's entry as its 2017 signature art. As a freelance graphic designer, Linda Huff, loves all things "Hawaiian." Her sincere affection for Hawaii began when she first visited as a young girl with her parents. Since then, she has become particularly attached to the Big Island for its unbridled beauty. Currently, she runs a logo design business and she has developed a personal illustrative technique using free-styled brushed strokes of black and splashes of brilliant color combined graphically on the computer. Her art will be showcased as the festival’s official poster. The art piece created for the Festival is a culmination of all her loves of the Big Island: Kona coffee, the ukulele, surfing, whales, sunsets, hibiscus, historical churches, and most importantly - aloha. Her art will be showcased as the festival’s official poster. Come for the fun, check out the art and of course taste the coffee.
