Hilo's premiere Jazz & Blues Festival since 2012
The East Hawaii Jazz & Blues Festival is one of the most popular music events on the Big Island of Hawai'i, drawing sell-out crowds of local and out-of-state guests. Held annually on the last Sunday of October, the festival is the signature fundraising event for the Hawaii Island Veterans Memorial Inc. The program features a lavish Pupu buffet, dessert station, wine and beer tasting, no host bar and non-stop music featuring some of Hawaii’s finest jazz and blues musicians along with highly acclaimed artists from the mainland.
