EVENTS IN KILAUEA, KAUAI, HAWAII
Every Thursday at 4:30p.m. the Kilauea Neighborhood Center Ball Park and Gym parking lot bustles with activity. Locals and tourists alike converge on this small historic town to sample some of the finest produce available.
From this small group of farmers, you’re likely to find a huge variety of fresh, local, and organic fruits and vegetables. Get there early and browse around before selling begins. Business usually opens with a car honk and/or a yell.
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement when everyone begins snatching their choice of produce and money begins changing hands. The market is next to Kong Lung Historic Market Center on Keneke Street.

The name of this all-ages outdoors arts festival says it all. Big Fun brings all the most beautiful parts of life on Kauai—music, local food, arts, family, and a relaxed vibe—into the Kong Lung Historic Market courtyard. If live music is your thing, this is a great opportunity to hear some uniquely local shows. Take in the sounds and the sight of a youth ukulele group or enjoy some more practiced island songs from one of the many backyard bands
(that’s a local term for really good groups that normally prefer to jam privately) that rarely come out to play a stage show. Foodies will love to sample some locally grown produce, watch an Iron Chef-style cook-off between local chefs, or maybe enjoy the scene from a table at one of Kong Lung’s eateries. And kids will have a great time participating in a variety of art and crafts including painting and lei making demonstrations.
