Island of Hawaiʻi Lūʻau

An important part of Hawaiʻi life is celebrating special occasions together with family and friends at a lūʻau – a grand celebration of food, music and culture. Lūʻau are often held to celebrate family milestones – a baby’s first birthday, a graduation from high school or a wedding.

 

Welcoming honored guests is another reason to hold a lūʻau, and visitors are welcomed to lūʻau on the island of Hawaiʻi every week. You can find a variety of lūʻau venues across the island, mostly in the resort areas of Historic Kailua Village and Keauhou in Kona and along the Kohala Coast.
 

You’ll dine on kālua pig cooked in an imu (earth oven), haupia (coconut pudding) and poi (Hawaiian taro starch), among many other delightful dishes. Then you can settle in under the stars, listen to live music and watch skilled hula performances that tell stories of the islands. For a colorful, interactive experience of our culture, there’s nothing quite like an authentic lūʻau – a must-have experience for any visit to the island of Hawaiʻi.
