The Kokua Puna Block Party, featuring two stages with multiple bands, is being held on Saturday, July 21, 2018, in Pāhoa Town sponsored by the Mainstreet-Pāhoa Association.

Headlining the entertainment is Kalapana Awa Band, Tavana, Olivia Thai, Marty Dread, El Leo and the Jarican Express, Loeka Longakit, Soul Town, Brittney Paiva, Brudda Kuz, Makana, Kanaka Express, Keoki Kahumoku, Marcus Mars, JPGS, Bobby Reno Band, Bending Elbows, and Selassieites—all in support of the relief efforts for Pāhoa and Puna.  

Pāhoa Village Road will be closed from Kaleo’s Bar and Grill to Savio Realty, turning the historic old town into an amazing block party with the glow from the lava flow lighting up the sky, an evening to remember for years to come.  

Admission to the event is a suggested donation of $10 per adult and kids are free. No one will be turned away.
