The first Hawaiian Steel Guitar Mini-Expo was held on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at Kane‘ohe's Windward Mall. Sponsored by Ke Kula Mele Hawai‘i School of Hawaiian Music and HIMELE, the mini-expo provided opportunities for the community to become more familiar with the Hawaiian steel guitar and try out the instrument. The free event was open to everyone and designed to introduce the instrument to youth guests ages 10 and older.
