Ke Kani O Ke Kai Summer Concert Series

Alternating Thursdays, June 13 through August 8

The Waikīkī Aquarium’s popular annual summer concert series offers visitors and residents an evening of live entertainment and food under the stars. The five-concert series was held on alternating Thursday evenings from mid-June through early August featuring some of Hawai‘i’s top entertainers. Concert guests were encouraged to explore the Aquarium galleries that remain open throughout the evening and bring blankets/chairs to sit on the beach-front lawn – making this major fundraiser one of the best, and unique, ways to experience the Aquarium and Waikīkī.

Seating will be tiered, so those sitting on mats on the grass lawn will be seated closest to the stage, those with low chairs in the next section back, and those with full size lawn chairs seated furthest-most from the state. No outside food or beverages will be permitted in the venue area. Limited parking may be available, so guests are encouraged to utilize public transportation to and from the event.
Children of all ages are permitted.
