Annual Lu'au May 1

April 27, 2011

Student volunteers work very hard each year to put on the Hui 'O Hawai'i Annual Lu'au event. This fanfare of delicious food, colorful fashions, live music, and Hula and Tahitian dance, is one of the best choices for the whole family for entertainment and cultural enrichment in Fort Collins. Children five and under are free.

Colorful music, dance

The wildly popular Asian Fest event, the Lu'au, is organized by CSU's Hui 'O Hawai'i Club to promote education and understanding of the Hawaiian culture.

The annual Lu'au will feature Hawaiian food and cultural performances. Doors open at 4 p.m.

Hawaiian music will start the night off as you are enjoying an authentic Hawaiian meal, followed by a dance program showcasing Hula and Tahitian dances. 

Authentic Hawaiian meal

The student volunteers work very hard every year to put on this event. Every year, flowers and other items from Hawai'i are flown in for this event to make it as authentic as possible.

Menu items served in the past include Kalua Pork (Hawaiian pulled pork),  vegetarian curry, chicken long rice, Haupia (Hawaiian coconut dessert), Hawaiian sweet rolls, white rice, and salad.

Admission covers expenses

The Hui 'O Hawai'i Club does not make any profit from this event. We charge ticket fees to cover all Lu'au expenses and to ensure that there are sufficient funds to continue putting on this event year after year.
