An unprecedented, interdisciplinary manifestation presented in partnership with the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, The Ola Project combines chants, music, dance, lectures and sculpture as a celebration of the Bay Area legacy of Patrick Makuakane’s hula school and dance company Nā Lei Hulu I Ka Wēkiu.

Ola means life in Hawaiian, and the event centers around the erection of a kuahu – a traditional Hawaiian shrine that serves as the focal point of the day’s activities. With hundreds of performers descending upon the gardens to dance, sing, build and celebrate, The Ola Project is a welcoming Hawaiian experience resonating with tradition and connectedness.
