The 4th annual Sailor Jerry Festival -- Saturday June 16th, 2018
To be held at multiple venues on and around Hotel Street in Oahu's Chinatown district.


The Sailor Jerry Festival is an Annual Event celebrating the life and loves of Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins... or Norman Keith Collins, NKC, Old Ironsides, etc.

Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins wasn't someone who needed to find ways to pass the time; he was a man of a million fascinations.

Many are surprised to learn more about him once they start to research his legacy and we'd like to help more people do so. Not necessarily a saint (he lived in a different time after all) his influence and innovations are undeniable.

This festival aims to honor his life, career, and that global influence... right where the legendary man spent so much of his time... Oahu's Chinatown District.

The brainchild of Jason Miller from 808shows.com / Hawaiian Express Records, who later brought in "Josh86" from Downbeat Diner & Lounge (as well as numerous musical endeavors) the Sailor Jerry Festival was at first tentatively titled 'The Old Ironsides Music Festival' back in 2013. Since it will be more than just music, the name was changed for year one, which took place on June 12th, 2015.

These are some of his stomping grounds. Respect that. Respect him. Let's celebrate what he did here.
Be advised: We have a zero tolerance policy for any shenanigans. Take care of the neighborhood.
