Tourism authority brings three events to Big Island in April
The Hawai‘i Tourism Authority is supporting three festivals and events occurring this month on Hawai‘i Island.
“Guided by our Strategic Plan and community-based Destination Management Action Plans (DMAP) for each island, we aim to enhance our community’s well-being by supporting local festivals and events,” said Caroline Anderson, the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s director of planning who oversees the Destination Management Action Plan process.
“We know how integral these programs are to the fabric of the community and are pleased to support the many organizers, volunteers and community members who put them on for residents and visitors to enjoy,” Anderson continued.
A Request for Proposals will be issued in the coming weeks for the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s 2023 Community Enrichment Program to support community-based festivals, events and projects occurring throughout the state from May to December 2023.
Hawai‘i Tourism Authority-supported events on the Big Island this month are as follows:

- Kōkua Kailua Spring Concert, April 16
- Cacao Education & Culinary Exploration – Big Island Chocolate Festival: Indulge Your Senses 2023, April 28-29
