Wildest Show: A Fundraiser for the Honolulu Zoo

Our summer concerts are back and reimagined! Join us for 5 afternoons of amazing local entertainment, live at the Honolulu Zoo’s Great Lawn. Sit back with your family and friends to enjoy music, keiki activities, and so much more while helping us raise funds for the Zoo’s new Hawaiian hawk habitat.

The Hawaiian hawk (‘Io), a symbol of Hawaiian royalty – swift, strong, and fierce – are natively found nowhere else in the world then Hawaii island. Facing challenges with habitat loss and human conflict the ‘Io needs our help. In partnership with the Hawaii Wildlife Center, a rehab facility specializing in native birds and bats, we are working to build a habitat for ‘Io that can no longer be released back in the wild here at the Honolulu Zoo.
