After years of creating and producing events, Street Grindz realized that the local community loves to support and have access to unique t-shirts, shoes and hats. So we created an event that highlighted Hawaii’s finest street-wear vendors under one roof.

Who should come to the event?
Holiday shoppers, the local community, supporters of each brand and street-art enthusiasts. Really, anyone who wants to find unique apparel for great deals.

Will there be any special deals or in-demand items?
Yes, some vendors will be offering exclusive-releases on apparel. There will be one-day special pricing and 20 percent off one item at each booth, with the donation of a gently used t-shirt that will be donated to IHS.

I’m looking forward to seeing what exclusive-release and new collection drops each vendor will have for Threadz.

HVN Apparel will have an exclusive-release t-shirt only available on Saturday, Big Bad Wolf Kids will be debuting their new collection, as will many others.

I’m also excited for Flash Flood’s live silk-screening, Pow Wow Hawaii’s art giveaway, and also seeing what comes out of the Tag Your Swag Studio.
