Calendar of Events

ONGOING EVENTS
Every Friday at Keauhou Shopping Center, Kona
Enjoy a free Hawaiian music and hula show in the center courtyard, from 6-7pm.

First Fridays in Holualoa
On the first Friday of every month, from 5:30-8:30pm, Holualoa Village comes together for a block party in and outside the town's art galleries and boutiques, with live music, gourmet "grab and go" food, and a chance to mingle with fellow art and culture lovers in the heart of Kona coffee country on the slopes of Hualalai. Rain or shine. Social Distancing, with face masks recommended.

Third Saturday Community Cardboard Shred Day at Ma'ona Community Garden
From 9 am to 2 pm, at 84-5097 Keala O Keawe Rd., Captain Cook, HI 96704.
"Got cardboard? Bring it to be shredded. Need cardboard? Come and get some. Don't send anymore cardboard to the landfill. When you put your cardboard in the recycling bins at the transfer stations none of it is recycled on island. What happens is that it is trucked to the harbor and loaded on a ship that then burns bunker fuel all the way to Taiwan. We can do better. We can use every piece of cardboard on this island to improve our soils and agricultural production through composting."

Third Saturday Electronic Waste Collection Days - Kona
Third Saturday of the month, from 9 am to 4 pm, at Kealakehe Transfer Station.
Mr. K's Recycle in Hilo offers this service on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month
