Celebrate Spring at the Spring Lu`au–a dinner and show for the whole family with Pacific Island food, dance and music! Students from the Ka ‘Ohana me ke Aloha Club on Saturday, April 14, will present their 48th Spring Lūˋau—an event they organize each year to familiarize Pacific Northwesterners with their storytelling cultures.

 

The celebration will include a Hawaiian dinner and a stage show with traditional dances from Pacific Ocean peoples. The event is one of the biggest celebrations of Polynesian culture in the state, attracting nearly 1,000 people each year.

 

Dinner will be served from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the dining hall of Wheelock Student Center, near the N. Alder Street entrance to campus on N. 15th Street. This year no tickets are required for the meal and guests will choose their own a la carte items from an array of Hawaiian dishes, paying with cash, a card, or student dining dollars.

 

The colorful stage show, including music and dancers, is ticketed. This will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Fieldhouse, just off the corner of Union Avenue and N. 11th Street. See below for ticket details and a map of campus.
