About the Event

Hawaii is the first State in the United States of America to establish in law an annual celebration that honors and celebrates our children and youth and the wonderful contributions they make to our world. Children & Youth Day (CYD) happens on the first Sunday of October, each year in Hawaii. This year is the 27th Annual Event which falls on Sunday, October 4, 2020 from 10:00am–3:00pm! CYD is a time to recognize the potential and special gifts of our keiki (children) and ‘ōpio (youth). It is a time for them to shine and share their bountiful energy with their community. This year’s theme is Belonging and all participating organizations can focus their booth on engaging activities to educate on the Hawaiian value of belonging to ‘aina (land), moana (ocean), lahui (community), ‘ohana (family) and ‘o wau (myself).

Why You Should Attend
