Island of Hawaii Luau

An important part of Hawaii life is celebrating special occasions together with family and friends at a luau – a grand celebration of food, music and culture. Luau 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 luau, and visitors are welcomed to luau on the island of Hawaii every week. You can find a variety of luau 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 kalua 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 luau – a must-have experience for any visit to the island of Hawaii.
