Check back often for updates!
Because we wanted something that was deeper and more human than a trade show, we coordinated events to inspire, relax, enlighten, and entertain.

Hawaii ParaCon 2019 - Grand Protocol & Pa‘ina
At 5pm, we’ll come together for a Grand Protocol ceremony in which to start our spiritual journey together off right.
There is an oral tradition about the goddess Hi‘iaka, the youngest sister of the fire goddess Pele. Wherever young Hi‘iaka traveled she always made it a point to ask for permission and acknowledgment before she entered or passed anywhere. It was a show of humility and respect from one who possessed supreme supernatural powers. This tradition continues with The Grand Protocol as Lopaka will offer a Hawaiian chant of permission from those within the area where our Pa‘ina (feast) will take place. This is not a touristy lu‘au but an authentic Hawaiian feast* which honors the seen and unseen and also asks for the guidance and protection during the weekend of the Hawaii ParaCon.
*The catered feast will include traditional Hawaiian foods such as pua‘a kalua (kalua pork), ‘uala (sweet potato) and poi among other delectable treats. For our vegan and vegetarian friends, we will also have some tasty choices for you!
The Grand Protocol & Pa‘ina is $40 per person.**
※ Grand Protocol & Pa‘ina is included for VIP Ticket Holders.
