Q: Am I crazy or was this event happening on the North Shore? Now it's in Lihue?


A: You're not crazy. We did begin our event planning with a North Shore event site. But that is no more. We are tremendously excited for the centrally located Grove Farm that can better serve the whole island. And, honestly, wow—Grove Farm is an incredible, ideal location with it's historic vibe and nostalgic setting that pair perfectly with KFF. If you had a ticket purchase that was depending on that North Shore location, contact us—otherwise we are so excited to see you there.

Please support the good people and good efforts of the Grove Farm Museum.
