Additional Information:
The Ala Moana Center Management is pleased to permit non-commercial activities to be conducted within Ala Moana Center by interested persons and organizations. These performances may be scheduled at designated times for a duration of 45 minutes. Because of the many requests to conduct such activities within the Center and the limited areas available for such activities, the Center Management has adopted the following Rules and Regulations for Centerstage activities within the Center.

  1. Process of Application
    (a) The commercial activities of Center tenants and their owners, officers, directors, employees, customers, and invitees are the primary activities of the Center. No person or organization shall conduct any other activity within the Center without first obtaining permission for such other activity. Permission will be granted only for joint areas of the Center designated by the Center Management.

    (b) An organization may apply for non-commercial activity online at no later than thirty (30) days prior to the first day desired for such activity. Examples of such organizations include community, non-profits, educational institutions and performance studios.

    (c) In evaluating an application for non-commercial activities within the Center, the Center Management shall consider the following: the kind of activity; the purpose of the activity; the number of participants expected; the dates, times, and duration of the activity; the materials, equipment, and other objects to be used in connection with the activity; the risk of injury to any person or property; the Center joint area desired; the flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the desired joint area; the size and configuration of the desired joint area; the number of other applications for activities to be conducted within the Center during the same period; the risk of unreasonable interference with the commercial activities of Center tenants and their owners, officers, directors, employees, customers, and invitees, and other factors.

    (d) If an application is for an activity which may reasonably be expected to risk public disorder or injury to any person or property or to require substantial cleaning, repairs, or restoration in order to return an area of the Center to its condition existing immediately prior to the commencement of the desired activity, the Center Management may, as a condition to granting an application, require security for the performance of the applicant's obligations as permitted under such application and these Rules and Regulations. Such security shall be in a form satisfactory to the Center Management and may be a cash deposit, a bond, an insurance policy, or other adequate assurance of the applicant's performance.

  2. Conditions of Applications
    Applications granted to applicants are subject to the following conditions and may be revoked, in the discretion of the Center Management, upon any violation of any such conditions:
