The East-West Center held its annual East-West Fest on April 16 with hundreds of people in attendance. This year’s theme was “Celebrating our Cultures, Sustaining our Communities.”

Two stages were set up to showcase cultural performances by students, community and professional performers with music, dance and martial arts.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Way of Tea Club also hosted three traditional Japanese tea ceremony demonstrations in the Japanese Tea House.

Visitors had the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities, sample foods, ask questions and learn about the different cultures represented at the festival.

Although the University of Hawaiʻi and East-West Center are separate institutions, they have long been close partners and neighbors.
