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.

Two entertainment stages provide non-stop entertainment consisting of several of Honolulu’s finest restaurants which will be serving up Spam in many different ways, so you can experience the enormous variety of its applications. Two merchandise tents will be selling Spam-themed items including t-shirts, shorts, sport balls, and slippers.
