Some things on Oahu you can enjoy year-round, but some special occasions only come once a year! Their spring exclusive events include the very original and not to be found elsewhere, Waikiki Spam Jam – yes, an entire festival dedicated to the fun pink canned meat, which indicates just how beloved it is by Hawaiian’s.

During the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards in early May, Honolulu is jumping with live music and Hawaii’s biggest music stars! You might find headliners casually ripping up the keys of a piano on a hotel patio or strumming the ukulele in a corner bar. If you want even more Ukulele, visit later in May for the Ukulele Picnic, a music festival that brings 5,000 or more fans of the instrument together in Kaka’ako Park.
