LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2017) — Come out and join Student Activities Board (SAB) and University of Kentucky International Center as they bring the first Hawaiian Heritage Festival to UK from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, at the Woodland Glenn Blue Courts. Take a dive into the Polynesian culture and experience different types of Hawaiian performances, food and crafts.

This festival will be for all attendees to learn more about Polynesian culture, which is commonly forgotten, taught incorrectly or misinterpreted. There will be live music, free food and various other activities that are prevalent in the Hawaiian culture for the student body to enjoy. There will also be dancers present to teach students how to hula.

“This event will be very authentic,” said Jasmine Howard-Wilson, director of SAB Multicultural Affairs. “It’s going to bring a new perspective to the students here on the University of Kentucky’s campus.”

SAB brings more than 60 entertaining, educational and enriching programs that are reflective of contemporary issues and trends to the University of Kentucky annually. These programs are designed to enhance the college experience for students, faculty, staff and the greater Lexington community.
