WHO benefits?

about us

Historic Waimea Theater and Cultural Arts Center(HWTCAC) is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide benefits to local worthy charities and non-profit groups by promoting the community of the West Kauai through a quality celebration of heritage, diversity and inclusion of its residents and visitors.

February 17-25, 2024

Waimea Town Celebration raises money for HWTCAC projects like the Historic Waimea Theater and the continued restoration of the Hawaiian Fort at Pāʻulaʻula.  Non-profit organizations and community groups such as our local schools, hula hālau, canoe clubs and sports teams also have the opportunity to raise money, and for many, this is their largest fundraiser for the year.

RAIN OR SHINE, join us and become a part of our commUNITY tradition!


HWTCAC is proud to host Waimea Town Celebration for its 45th anniversary.  Our non-profit organization is also responsible for the refurbishment and management of the nationally registered Historic Waimea Theater which is more than a movie theater. LIVE music concerts, private parties, halau ho'ike, school plays and community meetings are frequently held here.  Located in the center of our small town, it is considered to be the heart of Waimea!
