15th Annual Waikiki SPAM JAM Festival

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Waikiki SPAM JAM Festival is one of the most quirky and fun street festivals in the world! With help from presenting sponsor, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts – alongside others, the festival takes over Kalakaua Avenue—the busiest street in Waikiki—to celebrate SPAM products, a canned luncheon meat.

This year’s event is on Saturday, April 29 from 4-10pm. For 15 years, participating restaurants have cooked up mouthwatering dishes, which all feature SPAM® in creative ways.

Fun for all ages, guests can meet the SPAMMY™ character and “ride” the SPAM® Wave and even renew their vows under the Outrigger SPAM® Arch! The festival showcases delicious culinary creations, some of the best local music and entertainment, and highlights the pop culture phenomenon that SPAM® has become. 

The Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival was created to share Hawai‘i’s unique love of SPAM® products, but also supports local nonprofits, including Hawai‘i Foodbank. More than 25,000 residents and visitors attend the festival in Waikiki to experience the canned lunch meat in surprising ways – and a portion of the money they spend goes directly to the Hawaii Foodbank. The event also directly benefits the Waikiki Community Center and the Visitor Aloha Society. Since its inception, the festival has raised close to $150,000 and collected nearly 30,000 pounds of food – the equivalent of around 400,000 meals – to help feed Hawai‘i residents in need.

Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival offers something for all ages – food, entertainment and shopping. The main event attractions include: food booths, the SPAM® Shop, entertainment stages, retailer booths and more!
