Pacific University Annual Lūʻau and Hōʻike

The Pacific University Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i presents its annual Lū‘au and Hō‘ike on the second Saturday of April.

Lū‘au and Hō‘ike is the only completely student-run and student-directed lū‘au in the Northwest, attracting about 2,000 people every year. It is a culmination of hours of hard work and many hearts coming together to to share a unique aspect of our island heritage.

The event features a traditional meal served in the University Center, followed by the performance in the Stoller Center. Guests may purchase tickets for the meal and show together, or for the show only.
