With more than 80 local food, retail and nonprofit vendors as well as two beer gardens, Honolulu Night Market lit up the Our Kaka‘ako neighborhood along Keawe Street, Auahi Street, Coral Street and inside The Barn at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako with a smorgasbord for the senses.

Ho‘oulu Lāhui: Regenerating Oceania

In partnership with the 13th Festival of Pacific Arts and Culture (FestPAC), this edition of Honolulu Night Market showcased five hours of entertainment across two stages by FestPAC delegations from Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. FestPAC is the biggest celebration of indigenous Pacific Islanders, uniting artists, cultural practitioners, scholars, officials, and the public from the Pacific and beyond. Since 1972, various Pacific nations have hosted FestPAC every four years, serving as a key platform for cultural preservation, innovation, and diplomacy.

On the Main Stage at the corner of Coral Street and Auahi Street, audiences enjoyed fashion shows and live mele from the Cook Islands, Palau, Fiji, and American Sāmoa. Kaloko‘eli Courtyard Stage next to HMart Kaka‘ako was packed all night as enthralled attendees cheered live performances by heritage dance groups from American Sāmoa, Tokelau, the Cook Islands, Palau, and Tonga featuring traditional and contemporary styles. A heartfelt mahalo nui loa to PA‘I Foundation for providing the Hawaiian opening protocol for the evening, unifying all of us in the shared purpose of coming together for an unforgettable celebration of culture and our community.
