Kona Brew Fest is also a celebration of local and participatory art, so a perfect marriage of art and sustainability is represented in the annual Trash Fashion Show. Festival Go-ers delight in the high energy spectacle that shows off the original designs created by our team of local “trashanistas,” while we all get a reminder about how we can each manage waste more responsibly in our everyday lives. So, who are the “Trashionistas?” The costume designer/performance artists are local artists and friends, and they meet together throughout the year to swap materials, lend areas of expertise, and choose a rocking playlist to excite the crowd at just the right moments.
