POW!WOW! - Marina Hawaii Vacations


Author 01-21-2016

After the craziness of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years’ settles I am always excited for February to roll around for one reason: It is the time of year for POW!WOW! 


POW!It’s the impact that art has on a person. WOW!It’s reaction that the viewer has to art.


As POW!WOW! heads into their 6th year in Hawaii, we can only expect bigger and better work from the artists, musicians, photographers and media community that comes together to put on this event.  Some of my favorite artists participating in the event this year include : Cryptik, Paula Funga, Tristan Easton, Jeff Staple and Fafi, to name a few.  You can check out all the participants here:



POW!WOW! will be held from February 4th – 13th, 2016.  The event kicks off with a block party in Kaka’ako in conjunction with Honolulu Night Market, which will be a fun night filled with great food, art, and retail vendors.  Although I can’t make all the events for POW!WOW! I make sure that I make time to check out the artists in action while they start drawing and painting their masterpieces.   The greatest part of the murals is that even if you miss them in action, they will be up for a while so you can spend a day walking around the Kaka’ako area checking out the various pieces of artwork.  To help you map your trek, please check out the mural map : http://powwowhawaii.com/mural-map/

POW!WOW! will conclude their event with “Stranded in Paradise” a concert starring The Green and Dilated Peoples at Makers and Tasters (Old Fisherman’s Wharf).  The event will also be featuring street art battles, b-boy competitions, the best food trucks, retail vendors, and much more.  For more information about tickets for the event, please click the following link: https://tickets.powwowhawaii.com/event/StrandedinParadise


If you aren’t able to make it out to Hawaii during the week of POW!WOW! you might be able to catch them at their other events in Taiwan, Long Beach, Israel, Singapore, Washington DC, and much more.
