ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY's second annual WEST FEST is an event you won’t want to miss! Hosted by IPA and open to the public, WEST FEST 2018 will be an even bigger and better event than last year's.

There will be something fun for everyone at WEST FEST 2018 – live entertainment, giant water slides, food booths, a Country Store, the IPA Swag Store, keiki games, and special vendor booths. Plan to spend the day with us!

"E Hui Pū Kākou - Come Together As One" is the central idea for WEST FEST, reflecting the spirit of bringing together our IPA ‘ohana and the West side community for a day of wholesome fun with family and friends. This year's theme is "Flower Power" – look for colorful flower decorations throughout the fest bringing this theme to life!

Come out and join us on the ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY campus for WEST FEST 2018!

Our WEST FEST 2018 t-shirt features beautiful artwork by IPA student Gabrielle Lum ('20). Her design, created especially for WEST FEST, reflects the theme of this year's event – "Flower Power." The different flowers represent individuals, but their common color reflects the many things we share in common. The arrow linking the individual flowers from different parts of the globe signifies the connections between communities, and how we all "come together as one."
