IOLANI PALACE ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 QUEEN KAPIOLANI EVENING TOURS
HONOLULU (December 9, 2020) – Iolani Palace announced the cancellation of the 2020 Queen Kapiolani Evening Tours. The annual evening tours are hosted in honor of Her Majesty Queen Kapiolani’s birthday on December 31.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to put a hold on this treasured celebration to adhere to state guidelines and protect our community,” said Paula Akana, executive director of The Friends of Iolani Palace. “We look forward to sharing this experience with guests once it is safe to do so.”
Iolani Palace anticipates the Queen Kapiolani Evening Tours to resume in 2021. The event provides a rare and treasured opportunity for guests to visit the Palace at night and share in celebrations similar to those hosted during the 19th century.
