Second Annual Pacific Rim Jazz Festival
With the sold out success of its inaugural year, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival continues its tradition of bringing in world class entertainment to Hawaii as well as continuing to support the local community through its charitable contributions. With its goal of bringing in diverse talents from Pacific Rim nations the festival hopes to continue its reach and popularity to the international community as well as the USA. It is also the intent of the festival to highlight and feature many of Hawaii's own talented artists and musicians and in the process allowing them the opportunity to share the stage with world class artists. We are proud to announce our new and bigger venue, The Hawaii Convention Center Ballroom. We hope to substantially grow our audience and increase accessibility to Hawaii's tourist center in Waikiki.
