Mangofest is here!
The Big Island has double the fun with the Hawaii Healing Garden & Mango Festival Saturday, July 31 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Outrigger Keauhou Beach Resort. This year’s Hawaii Island festival is a collaborative event with the Annual Mango Festival, expanding the flavors of the island’s summer mango season. Admission is free!
The all-day festival celebrates Hawaii’s delicious and diverse mango varieties, with juicy mango recipe and fruit tastings, a mango tree and plant sale, grafting and growing demonstrations, mango-themed activities, plus arts and crafts.
Also on tap are organic agriculture and cultural healing arts displays.
Enjoy an Eco Fashion Show by Divine Goods,
Belly dancing by Stephanie Bolton & Liliana Alba, Hawaiian music and dramatic hula on the scenic, palm-fringed grounds of the Keauhou Beach Resort’s Royal Garden.
The annual mango celebration is a zero waste event and presented by Hawaii Health Guide and the non-profit Sanctuary of Mana Kea Gardens with support from the Keauhou Beach Resort. The event joins the statewide series of Hawaii Healing Garden Festivals, which offers an educational opportunity for the community to gather with cultural health practitioners, educators, botanical experts, chefs, nutritionists, gardeners, farmers, agriculture and sustainability experts, health-oriented businesses and nonprofit organizations to showcase Hawaii’s growing healthy, green services and cultural resources.
