Started in 1970, in celebration of Kona coffee farmers, the festival aims to promote, preserve, and perpetuate the history and culture of Kona coffee. This year’s festival is from November 1-10 with a variety of family-friendly events held each day all over Kailua-Kona.
One signature event of the festival is the Kona coffee picking contest at the UCC Kona Coffee Estate on November 3 at 8:30am (registration begins at 7:30am). With prizes for competition winners, food and refreshments, and fun for all, everyone from children to adults is invited to experience the Kona coffee harvest.
