Join us this Sunday, August 25th at Hawaii Polo for a day of peace, love, music and polo.
Featuring Grateful Dead tribute concert by the Stephen Inglis Project, as well as sustainable, farm-fresh food and drinks, eco-friendly fashion, exciting polo and a sea of aloha.
50 years ago a half million people made a pilgrimage to the country, gathering at Woodstock Music & Art Fair on a farm in upstate New York. Their voices and actions sent a powerful message of peace to the world and launched rock music into the stratosphere. This Sunday, we celebrate the spirit of Woodstock and its music.
Free entry for owners of classic VW’s who register in advance (see details below).
Only Two Hawaii Polo Sundays Left This Season!

★ GRATEFUL DEAD TRIBUTE ★
Hawaii guitar great, Stephen Inglis, brings his band (“The Stephen Inglis Project”) to Hawaii Polo ready to deliver an energized tribute to The Grateful Dead. Inglis is a world-class guitarist with deep insight into the Dead. When just 22 years old, Inglis served as lead guitarist in “House of Spirits” – a 1990’s band headed up by Bill Kreautzmann (the Dead’s founding and forever drummer). Inglis’ 2018 album, “Cut The Dead Some Slack,” is comprised entirely of songs from the Dead’s cannon, mostly performed in slack key fashion. Dennis McNally, *the* publicist for the Dead from ‘84 thru ‘95, supported the release of Inglis’ stellar album which garnered much attention nationally including frequent praise and spins from David Gans on his iconic radio show, “The Grateful Dead Hour.” This Sunday, Inglis brings his power trio to our stage including his electric guitar and amplifier. The Grateful Dead performed at and embodied the spirit of Woodstock. As the late afternoon sun casts a golden glow onto our field, Stephen Inglis and band will take the stage and transport us to another time and place.

★ SUSTAINABLE, FARM-FRESH FOOD & DRINKS ★
Farming was literally at the heart of Woodstock (the event took place on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm), and we’re celebrating the landmark festival with *ono*, healthy food and mocktails made in large part from Hawaii farm goods. One of our best menus of the season this weekend:
- ‘Ulu Mana: Hawaiian breadfruit hummus, ulu and sweet potato chips, watermelon coolers.
- Sandy’s Sandwiches (5-star Yelp rating): veggie burger, veggie sandwich (mixed greens, tomato, sun dried tomato, bell peppers, cucumber, artichoke hearts, avocado), toasts, plus sandwiches: Argentinian steak, turkey brie, chicken pesto.
- Maya’s Tapas (5-star Yelp rating): seafood paella, Kunoa Cattle grass-fed burger, garlic fingerling potatoes.
- Gazoz: fruit-enriched sparkling waters.
- Sunset Snacks Hawaii (a keiki-powered stand): fresh-squeezed lemonade and gluten-free breads.
★ FASHION & ART ★
Hippy Chic Designs brings an assortment of fashionable items for both you and your pets, all of which are made of repurposed materials (e.g. firehose belts). Ayahuasca Art shares jewelry that calls out the power and beauty of nature.
★ SMILEY, HAPPY PEOPLE ★
Every Sunday during our season, we are inspired by the diverse, friendly assemblage of people who gather at Hawaii Polo. It ain’t perfect, but it is beautiful and very much in line with Woodstock ideals. Mahalo to Woodstock for shining a brilliant light on peace, love and understanding and to everyone who helps carry on this tradition at Hawaii Polo and beyond.
