Community Events in Hawaii During July

The summer season is in full swing during July in Hawaii, and the Islands typically offer warm and sunny weather.

During the day, temperatures range from 85 to 90 Fahrenheit (around 29-35 degrees Celsius), making it perfect for beach activities. The north shores of most islands are also generally calm, providing excellent swimming, snorkeling, and diving conditions.

July is also smack dab in the middle of the summer break for schools, making it an ideal time for family vacations. Therefore hotels and vacation homes are often booked fairly far in advance. 

While this season is peak for visitors, communities in Hawaii are no different than others across the US. They take advantage of the school break and nice weather to plan festivals and celebrations. These festivals offer a fun and accessible way for visitors to participate in the local communities and appreciate the local culture.

We've put together a lineup of events happening across the islands in July.
