T-shirts for the 2023 Hawai'i Island Steel Guitar Festival are now available online at reduced pre-festival pricing from the HIMELE T-shirt store.
The presale event ends on November 23, 2023. A limited number of Adult short sleeve T-shirts will be available at the festival at festival prices.
The pre-festival event offers four different T-shirt styles. Included are Hanes Authentic T-shirt - Deep Red, Hanes Youth Authentic T-shirt - Deep Red, Hanes Authentic Long Sleeve T-shirt - Deep Red, and Port & Company Core Cotton Tank - Red. Sizes vary for each style but generally include sizes YXL-4XL. A surcharge will be added for larger sizes.
All t-shirts feature an exclusive design created especially for the 2023 festival. The design by artist Benjamin Rudy of Switzerland pays tribute to the steel guitar's originator Joseph Kekuku of Lāie, O'ahu. The reverse memoralizes the Hawai‘i Island Steel Guitar Experience.
The four T-shirt styles can be viewed on the 2023 Festival T-shirt page.
