Music Through the Ages: A Chart-Topping Carnival on February 7 – 8, 2020 

The Punahou Class of 2021 is currently preparing for their annual fundraising event promising a-rockin' good time. The entirety of proceeds from Punahou Carnival supports the School’s financial aid program.


Carnival Highlights

  • Art Gallery
  • Food, Rides, and Games
  • Hawaiian Plate and Entertainment
  • Silent Auction
  • Variety Show
  • White Elephant and Other Goods



Most food booths, games and merchandise (white elephant, plants, etc.) at Carnival require payment in scrip, which can be purchased in $10 sheets of 20 scrips (1 scrip = 50¢) at multiple locations within the carnival grounds. Some booths also accept cash and credit cards, including:

  • Art Gallery (scrip, cash or credit card)
  • Silent Auction (scrip, cash or credit card)

Visit the Fun Pass trailer to load your card using a credit card. New fun passes loaded with 200 credits are also available for purchase using Carnival scrip. E.K. Fernandez attractions (rides, games, and food) only accept Fun Passes – not Punahou Carnival scrip – and Fun Passes can only be used at E.K. Fernandez attractions.

Punahou Carnival History

The first Punahou Carnival was orchestrated in 1932, during the Great Depression with the student body hosting an "Oahuan Campus Carnival" at Rice Field to raise money for their yearbook replete with the usual Carnival fare and games. The event raised $240 for the Oahuan yearbook and a few years later in 1936 midway rides were added to the event expanding the appeal of the carnivalToday, the Carnival is a major fundraising event supported by hundreds of students, parents, faculty/staff and alumni volunteers.

Aloha Kimo - the history of the  Punahou fundraising event combined with vast activities associated with it seem as if some chart-busting will likely take place this weekend.  Good luck to those who will benefit and to all attending have a wonderful time.

Aloha Michael Jacobs, it's an impressive operation, although I haven't attended in years it's fun to see all the students running the show. Its such a popular event that getting in an out of the place can be tricky and planning ahead is clutch. Mahalo for commenting!
