Hawaii's largest street festival is a testament to the Aloha State's vibrant SPAM® brand-loving community and will take over the streets of bustling Kalakaua Ave. with unique and delicious SPAM® creations and traditional Hawaiian entertainment, gathering more than 30,000 SPAM® devotees and visitors from around the world.

While enjoying delicious creations, attendees can listen to live music on three stages featuring local musicians such as Jeff Rasmussen & Robi Kahakala, Kani Ka Pila Grill talent search winner, Ei Nei and internationally renowned Hiroshima, along with appearances by Miss Hawaii and Miss Chinatown and performances by traditional hula performers.
The fun doesn't stop with food and entertainment, as this family-friendly festival allows locals and visitors of all ages to participate in various arts and crafts offerings, hang out with the SPAM® brand's own SPAMMY® character and other friends, compete in games to win prizes, plus take photos with SPAM® Brand inspired props such as a huge SPAM® sculpture created with more than 3,000 cans of SPAM® products.
