Complete with popsicles, pie and pool floats, the ‘Iwa Arts & Cafe and the Strawberry Patch Restaurant in Kealakekua will host a Summertime Celebration on Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, from noon to 3 p.m. 

The event serves as a belated grand opening and will showcase local restaurants, artists and performers.

The event line up includes an art exhibit by Lauren Bradburn, a rasp knife demonstration by Neil Kamimura, and a performance by Kona Dance and Performing Arts.

Nowelo, featuring Ann Hoku Lynn on trumpet, will play a fusion of acoustic blues, jazz and hip-hop. Loko Wraps will also be serving up heaping plates of food.


    ‘Iwa Arts & Café, located in the 150-year-old historic Honuaino Square, opened in April 2017 with a mission to bridge the understanding between handmade objects and the process of making them.

    A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit Child & Family Services.
