Kauai Culinary Market

But what about food? Don’t worry, we didn’t forget - and neither did Kauai. If you’re visiting the island in February, stop by The Shops at Kukuiula on a Wednesday evening. There, you’ll find the Kauai Culinary Market, one of the absolute best markets anywhere in the state. Live music, tons of fresh produce and cooked meals, chefs going onstage to show off, and a wine and beer garden. The grounds on which this takes place in Koloa are also quite beautiful. 

When: Wednesdays, February 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th; 3:30 PM - 6 PM 

Where: 2829 Ala Kalanikaumaka St, Koloa (The Shops at Kukuiula)

Makai Music & Art Festival

The Makai festival is a staple of our Kauai lists because it combines a lot of what many look for in a Hawaii event. It has the music, the local food, the handmade local crafts, and the distinctively laid-back, friendly atmosphere - like you could spend all day there. It also has free admission and free parking!  

When: Wednesdays, February 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th; 1 PM - 5 PM
Where: 4080 Lei O Papa Rd, Princeville (Makai Lawn)
More Info: Makai Music & Art Festival
