  • Wednesday, July 6: Robi Kahakalau
  • Wednesday, July 13: Pure Heart

In addition to live entertainment, guests will also enjoy fun pre-concert family activities such as Conservation Stationsanimal-themed drawing contests for keiki and animal trivia. Proceeds from this year’s concert series will support the construction of a new exhibit at the Honolulu Zoo for the threatened Hawaiian hawk (io), which are only found on the island of Hawai‘i.

Admission is $10 for Honolulu Zoo Society members, $15 for non-members, and $5 for children ages 3 to 12 years old; children 2 and under are free.
