The annual Arizona Aloha Festival is back at Tempe Beach Park on March 12th and 13th from 10am – 5:00pm each day. Be ready for 2 days full of sun and fun!
The AZ Aloha Festival provides awareness and education about Hawaiian and other South Pacific Islander culture and heritage. But, there is so much more! This festival is FREE to attend and is fun for all. Great food, amazing culture, amazing arts and crafts and so much more. Each year, my family and I look forward to attending the Arizona Aloha Festival. My kids love the Hawaiian shaved ice, the dancers and all of the unique crafts, etc. I always enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the entire experience. It is a really nice, family-friendly event.
Just like any of the awesome events held at Tempe Town Lake, getting to the Arizona Aloha Festival is easy. Just hop on the METRO light rail and head to the Mill Avenue Station. While some kids ride for free, there are reduced fares available for ages 6-18. ( 5 and under are always free ) The reduced fares are $2.00 for an all day pass. For most of us, and all day light rail pass is $4.00 and can be purchased at any station. You can use any of the FREE park and ride lots along the line and then head to the Mill Avenue Station to get to the Aloha Festival. The map below shows the area of the Tempe light rail station closest to the Arizona Aloha Festival at Tempe Town Lake.
