About Super Saturday

Free hands-on art activities for all ages! Make your very own work of art to take home while listening to live music.

  • Eric Keli’i Beyer: DIY Christmas ornaments using watercolor pencils.

  • Hannah Shun: ‘Hang Loose’ Crafting Workshop.
  • Green Tea Leaves Jewelry: Perler Beads Jewelry Workshop for kids & adults.
  • Blue Feather & Fin: Watercolor Painting Workshop (watercolor mosaics with a stained glass effect).
  • Wax Hands of Aloha: Wax Hands.
  • Book Reading – Five students explore where their food comes from and share their food stories during a class show-and-tell. Things take a turn when one student’s honest mistake becomes something special for the entire school to enjoy. This book was written by a team of students and educators from Iolani School and President George Washington Middle School in Honolulu, Hawaii. Through this story, it is their hope that more people will grow their own food, buy from local farmers, plant more trees, and even start their own school garden. Two readings: 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
  • Photo Ops photobooth (free!).
  • LovePuff cotton candy booth.
  • Artizen Cafe special menu.
  • Live DJ set with DJ Jetboy.
