Waikiki Spam Jam Festival 2019

 

The Waikiki SPAM® JAM Festival celebrates 17 years of food, festivities and fun! Hawaii’s top-rated street food festival is set for April 27, 2019.

Each year, 35,000 guests and local residents gather for Hawaii’s most beloved and delicious annual event – the Waikiki SPAM® JAM Festival. Celebrating its 17th anniversary, the Waikiki SPAM® JAM Festival will fill Kalakaua Avenue with the sound of sizzling SPAM®, live music and entertainment, and excitement on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 4 to 10 p.m.

Hawaii’s love affair with SPAM® dates back 90 years, when the pre-cooked luncheon meat was served to American military. In 2018, with billions of cans of SPAM® products sold, Hawaii continues to lead the nation in its love for SPAM® products. The most recent data suggests Hawaii residents buy nearly 7 million cans of SPAM® products per year.

Waikiki SPAM® JAM Festival attendees can enjoy a selection of SPAM® recipes from participating local restaurants and see first-hand the many ways SPAM® products can be prepared. There are twenty restaurants participating.

Expect to not only be well-fed but entertained, as festival goers will be serenaded by some of the island’s best musical acts from three stages. Two stages will feature performances by top local artists, while another stage is dedicated to Merrie Monarch winning hula halaus. Hawaiian arts and craft vendors will be showcasing their products, and SPAM® merchandise, such as T-shirts, shorts and slippers, will be available for purchase.

Admission to the family-friendly event is free and proceeds generated benefit the Hawaii Foodbank and other local charities, including the Waikiki Community Center and the Visitor Aloha Society.
