Taste the Flavors of Poipu


The Poipu Beach Resort Association (PBRA) will host the 2nd Annual Poipu Food & Wine Festival, from November 8th through November 12th. The five-day event will celebrate Kauai’s diverse culinary resources and talents, while supporting the Culinary Arts Program at Kauai Community College (KCC).



Come for the food, stay for the music.


Hawaiian regional cuisine is blossoming and every Wednesday the Kauai Culinary Market is hosted by The Shops at Kukui`ula in partnership with the Kauai County Farm Bureau from 3:30 to 6 p.m. in the traditional pau hana (after work) style. Live island music fills the air; fresh, locally-grown fruits, vegetables and coffee, along with spices, jams and cheeses fill farmers’ stands. South shore chefs take the stage at the Wine and Beer Garden to show their skill cooking local specialties.
