Oct. 1-Nov. 26: SENTENARYO: 100 YEARS OF FILIPINOS IN HAWAI‘I celebrates the Filipino Centennial in Hawai‘i. In partnership with the Filipino Centennial Commission, Bishop Museum will host A Gathering of A Hundred Stars at Family Sunday to celebrate this important milestone of the Filipino community.

Headlined by Philippine singing and acting sensation Randy Santiago, event-goers will be treated to entertainment throughout the day, including performances by Broadway Babies, Hawai‘i Ballroom Association, Larawan Youth Ensemble, Salsa Hawaii, Silangan Singers, and other talented performers. Visitors will also enjoy demonstrations of Filipino culture, talk-story programs, and of course, delicious Filipino cuisine, and two new exhibits, Sentenaryo that commemorate the many contributions of Filipinos and Filipino-Americans to the cultural, social, and economic growth of Hawai‘i over the last century, and Singgalot (Ties that Bind), Filipinos in America: From Colonial Subjects to Citizens.

Singgalot comes to the Bishop Museum fresh from the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Directed by Professor Dean Alegado of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Singgalot explores the challenges and issues that confronted Filipinos in America, and highlights some of their unique challenges.

Both exhibits will be on display in the Castle Memorial Building

Oct. 31 Halloween TREAT STREET

Ghoulish ghosts and ghastly goblins will gather on Halloween night for Bishop Museum’s 19th annual Treat Street, a free , safe trick-or-treat for costumed keiki of all ages with kids’ contests, story telling, fun games, and great food.

Treat Street is a custom-designed neighborhood of colorful facades, on the Bishop Museum’s Great Lawn. Built by students of the UH-Manoa School of Architecture, it provides a safe alternative “neighborhood” where children under 12 can gather Halloween loot.

Treat Street opens 5:30 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m. Admission is free; however, donations are welcome and will help support the Museum’s education and outreach programs that serve children and families each year.
