We’re working on this article and will publish it soon.
Since ancient times, Hawaiian cultural practices have included traditions such as poi pounding, fish ponds, and ʻahaʻaina (commonly called lūʻau), along with many fine arts and crafts including featherwork, wood carving, kapa or bark cloth (commonly called tapa), tatoos, and more. We’ll delve into these and more to give you an overview of traditional Hawaiian culture.
But wait, there’s more!

Hawaii on the Cheap publishes information about free and cheap events, discount tickets on entertainment, and tips for saving money while living in (or visiting) the Hawaiian Islands. You’ll find fun things to do every night of the week. 2021 is our inaugural year and we’re just getting started.
We focus on events with free admission with broad appeal for all ages and interests. We also include some events with targeted audiences, such as family, over 21+, LGBTQ, etc.
For events with an admission fee, we focus on “cheap” things to do with a kamaʻāina adult ticket price of $15 or less. We include some events with an admission price higher than $15 if there are ways to reduce the cost (such as buy tickets in advance, buy a series subscription or group of tickets, volunteer at the event, etc.).
We also like to splurge once in a while. At our discretion, we publish a few events that exceed our kamaʻāina $15 limit, particularly if they seem “splurge worthy” because they are unusually fun or interesting. We also edge higher than $15 kamaʻāina price for events featuring Hawaiian art and culture (traditional or contemporary).
Mahalo nui loa for visiting.
