Island Breeze Concert: Jeff Peterson, Riley Lee, and Kenny Endo

Music is all over the islands. Less common, however, are ambitious three-way musical fusions. That’s exactly what lucky visitors to Kauai in early December are getting with the Island Breeze Concerts coming to Kilauea and Lihue. Slack key guitar, Taiko drum, and Shakuhachi are all played onstage together by masters of the respective crafts - your ears don’t want to miss it.

When: December 3rd, 5 PM - 7:30 PM; December 4th, 2 PM - 4:30 PM
Where: 5-2723 Kuhio Hwy, Kilauea (Anaina Hou, Porter Pavilion Complex); 4331 Kauai Beach Dr, Lihue (Kauai Beach Resort)

Wailua Bay Creator Fair

Stop by the Wailua Bay Creator Fair at the Hilton Garden Inn to connect with the local community on Kauai this holiday season. Designed to support local businesses, virtually all of whom suffered during the pandemic, the fair is a beautiful location to explore and find unique local products sourced from the minds of the community and the island you walk on.

When: December 11th, December 23rd, 8:30 AM - 1 PM
Where: 3-5920 Kuhio Hwy, Kapa’a (Hilton Garden Inn Wailua Bay)

Winter Horsemanship Camp

Following the photo opportunity on December 18th, Healing Horses will also host its Winter Horsemanship Camp. For kids ages 4 to 14, this is a wonderful opportunity to embark on what is described as an “equestrian adventure,” learning valuable skills among peers in one of the world’s most beautiful locations.

When: December 19th - December 23rd, 8:30 AM - 2 PM
Where: Kapa’a Bypass Rd, Kapa’a (Healing Horses Kauai)
