Stanford Lūʻau

The Stanford Lūʻau is a celebration of Hawaiian and Polynesian culture put on by Hawaiʻi Club in conjunction with Hui and Kaorihiva, with support from ASSU. Lūʻau features traditional and local-style Hawaiian food, live music performances, and traditional Polynesian dances such as hula and Tahitian. Held annually in spring quarter, Lūʻau honors and celebrates the often under-represented indigenous cultures of Polynesia, as well as the local culture and cuisine of Hawaiʻi, helping to increase their visibility on campus and spread awareness to the Stanford community.

About the Theme:
