More than a shopping excursion, Four Seasons Moonlight Market is an immersive cultural experience showcasing the wide array of talent on Oahu's west side that is part of the Resort's new #FSWayfinders program.
#FSWayfinders, inspired by ancient Polynesian navigational tradition, is an ongoing weekly series featuring art, culture, history and in-depth workshops at the new Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. The recently launched program showcases myriad experiences related to Hawaii and the Pacific, weaving together traditions of the past with an occasional modern spin. Workshop opportunities include bamboo wood carving, haku lei making, lauhala weaving, ancient healing practices and sarong dying, to name a few.
"Oahu's western coastline is home to revered cultural storytellers, artisans, and crafters," says Four Seasons Resort Oahu General Manager Sanjiv Hulugalle. "From watermen to kupuna, artisans to designers, these kama'aina are the breath of life to Hawaii. Our Moonlight Market brings the full #FSWayfinders collective together and Thanksgiving offers us the perfect opportunity to involve the community in a larger way. We're taking the stress out of holiday shopping and turning it into a one-of-a-kind cultural experience for guests and visitors alike."
From paintings to jewelry, clothing, home decor and keiki apparel, Moonlight Market makes Ko Olina the island's premier shopping destination over Thanksgiving weekend. Visitors can interact freely with the island's most coveted designers and artists, enjoy live music with the sound of surf in the background, and bask in the reflection of glow lights set against the breathtaking canvas of the night sky.
