Oahu Events in June

Events & Festivals on the Island of Oahu

Summer is coming to Hawaii, and the island of Oahu is right in the middle of all of it. The June calendar is piling up with events, many of them (understandably) outdoor/ocean-related.

We still recommend keeping an eye on the calendar as the dates approach. For instance, one major June 2022 event - the Pan-Pacific Festival in Honolulu - was recently canceled this past year due to ongoing COVID concerns.

Here are some of the most fantastic events and festivals coming to Oahu this coming June.
