The Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival

April 28, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| FREE

The Waikiki SPAM® Jam is an exciting annual street festival that takes place on Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki. The event celebrates the unusually high consumption of SPAM® in Hawaii and features a variety of Honolulu’s finest restaurants serving up SPAM®-inspired creations.

Why do people in Hawaii eat so much spam? During the plantation and territory days, spam became popular as a source of protein as Hawaiians moved away from traditional hunting and fishing practices.

This street festival is great for all ages, as the event includes Hawaii’s top restaurants, two stages with free entertainment, and a variety of Hawaiian retailers. This is also a special event that benefits the Hawaii Foodbank, the largest non-profit in Hawaii that feeds the needy.
