Spam Jam this weekend in Waikiki
Posted by Unknown | Thursday, May 1, 2014

Many places in the world have a signature food festival. You may have heard about tomatoes, ribs, onions or pumpkins, but you may have never seen anything like this, a Spam® festival!

Celebrate your love for SPAM with fellow SPAM lovers at the Waikiki Spam Jam Street Festival happening on May 3rd from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.! The festival will feature food from Hawaii's top restaurants with free live entertainment on two stages and craft booths full of Spam themed souvenirs for purchase including t-shirts, shorts, sport balls, and slippers.
It's a  family friendly event so come on down!  It will happen on Kalakaua Avenue between Lewers Street and Kaiulani Avenue.  Kalakaua Avenue is closed to car traffic for the event so keep that in mind if you will be arriving or leaving that day.  Traffic could be heavier than normal on the side streets due to the closure so allow extra time to get to your destination during those hours.   But, during the event our Waikiki Vacation Rentals at the Marine Surf, the Royal Kuhio, the Waikiki Park Heights and the Pacific Monarch are all about a 5 minute walk to the festival so there will be no need for a car.  Our other units are all just a few more minutes away by bus or taxi.

 This festival has been rated as one of the top annual food festivals in Hawaii.  Local residents and visitors alike have made this an annual tradition. Last year, an estimated 25,000 people attended the event.  Bring cash to make buying food and souvenirs quicker and easier.  Last year I ate a barbeque spam sandwich with coleslaw and spam lettuce wraps.  Both were absolutely delicious!

During the Spam® Jam Street Festival, booths are set up by volunteers to help collect donations of Spam for the Hawaii Food Bank.  They would love for all attendees to bring down a can of Spam® to donate.
 Hawaii has long been a fan of Spam and more Spam® is consumed per person in Hawaii than in any other state in the U.S.  Yum!
