Taste the Flavors of Poipu


The Poipu Beach Resort Association (PBRA) will host the 3rd Annual Poipu Food & Wine Festival, from November 7th through November 10th. The four-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.


Unique to the weekly market is a ‘Chef’s Competition, Kukui`ula Style’. Stay tuned for details.



Cook with some of Poipu's finest Chefs


Participate in a hands-on cooking class with some of Poipu’s top chefs in their own restaurant. Classes at $50 per person will be limited in size and include a tasting and a commemorative gift.


Local delicacies, served street food style


Groove to the music of top island artists, while enjoying local delicacies served street-food style along with outdoor beer and wine gardens at this festive pau hana party at the Shops at Kukui`ula. This Flavors feature Chefs as the “headliners” with culinary demonstrations by one of Kauai’s Best Bartenders spotlighting Koloa Rum concoctions and Kauai Community College (KCC) Culinary Arts Program faculty and students appear as special guests.  The culinary demonstration at 5:00pm will feature KCC students as they prepare tantalizing local specialties utilizing Kaua’i grown ingredients while showcasing their skills. FREE with plates available for purchase, proceeds to benefit KCC.



Dining Out, Poipu Style


New to the Festival this year is the Poipu Culinary Scholarship Gala, an exquisite epicurean event and benefit fundraiser for the Kauai Community College Culinary Arts Program.

Funds raised at the Culinary Scholarship Gala help with the continued development of KCC’s Culinary Arts Program by providing financial assistance for students in need. The Program trains approximately 60 students a year and many of the graduates go on to find jobs in the local culinary industry.  Details to come.
