Taste Your Way Around the Made in Hawaii Festival presented by First Hawaiian Bank

Taste Your Way Around the Made in Hawaii Festival presented by First Hawaiian Bank

There is no excuse for visitors to this year’s Made in Hawaii Festival to go home hungry. With Island chefs putting on cooking demonstrations throughout the three-day festival, and nearly 120 of the 400-plus exhibitors sampling and selling their locally made food products, beverages and fresh produce, the challenge will be deciding how best to navigate all of the culinary choices.

 

Presented by First Hawaiian Bank since its inception 20 years ago, this annual showcase of food, health and beauty products; apparel and accessories; gifts, books, artwork, crafts and other Island-made goods takes place at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena and Exhibition Hall on Friday and Saturday, August 15 and 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday, August 17, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

The event also will feature a line-up of award-winning Hawaii musicians on the entertainment stage in the Pikake Room.
