What's On Hawaii November
Festivals & Events

Hawaii November Events

November is the month of Thanksgiving and this year hosts Hawaii’s largest festival on Oahu, the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. Other notable large events include the statewide Hawaii International Film Festival, Kona Coffee Cultural Festival on the island of Hawaii and the Made in Maui County Festival.

Some cool entertainment is on offer, like the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra’s tribute to Michael Jackson and Jimmy Buffet playing at the Waikiki Shell (a beautiful outdoor concert venue, as pictured above). And it’s the beginning of the big wave surfing events on Oahu’s North Shore!

What’s On Hawaii is a monthly calendar of Hawaii events carefully curated for holiday-makers to highlight what’s on during their stay!

Download your copy of the Hawaii events November 2017 calendar in a printable PDF format below or view the complete list of events outlined underneath.

Warning: There are so many events on this month that I had to make the font size small but you can zoom in!
