December 28-30, 2018
During the 2018 Queen Kapiolani Evening Tours, guests can step back in time and experience the Palace in its 19th-century grandeur. As the Queen’s birthday takes place on Dec. 31, the Palace will be adorned with shimmering decorations and music will swell throughout the halls as it would at King Kalakaua’s holiday soirees.
