Visiting Oahu is a special event in itself, but there’s also always something fun going on, too. From year round luaus to stage shows and festivals, there’s plenty to keep you entertained during your trip to Oahu. If you’re planning your trip in April, keep an eye out for Easter events in Oahu as well.
More and more events have returned this year. However, please keep in mind that while many of us have moved past the pandemic, events are often still in flux and may still be subject to cancellations or delays.
Moon Walk at Waimea Valley – May 14th
The Moon Walk returns to Waimea Valley starting in May. The Moon Walk is a night of fun! You take a moonlit walk though botanical gardens and learn about rare plants on a guided tour. Be sure to bring a flashlight though! The event goes through October during every full moon.
Ko’olina Artfest – April 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th
If you’re interested in art and handmade crafts produced by local Hawaiian artists, the Ko’olina Artfest is a must see. These products cannot be found in stores around the island. The Ko’Olina ArtFest is ongoing at the Ko Olina Beach Club and runs from 9 AM to 4 PM.
Royal Hawaiian Band at the Honolulu Zoo – April 9th & 16th, 2022
The “King’s Band” was originally created by King Kamehameha III in 1836 for state occasions, funerals, and parades. Their mission is to promote and preserve Hawaiian culture. Be sure to get to the Honolulu Zoo early as the show tends to get crowded fast. The Honolulu Zoo has additional events being held all through April and May including Twilight Tours, art shows, and an Easter egg hunt.
Easter Brunch – April 17th
Brunch is back! If you’re spending Easter on Oahu, be sure to book an Easter brunch. Favorite Easter brunches include the prime rib brunch in the botanical gardens of Waimea Valley, Orchids, Koko Head Café, Merriman’s, and Beachhouse at the Moana.
Waikiki SPAM Jam Festival – April 22nd – May 1st
What would a trip to Hawaii be without SPAM? The Waikiki SPAM Jam is a weeklong event celebrating Hawaii’s favorite canned meat. It’s also one of Waikiki’s largest festivals with live entertainment and performances, merchandise, and, of course, food vendors featuring unique SPAM dishes.
KCC Farmers Market
Speaking of great good. The KCC Farmers Market on the side of Diamond Head is the place to check out every Saturday morning. It’s more than amazing produce; the market features some of the best pop-up restaurants on Oahu and local favorites like Ono Pops and roasted corn.
