2018 Waikiki SPAM JAM is on!

The 2018 SPAM JAM will take place this Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 4pm to 10pm on Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki. 

The Waikiki SPAM JAM® street festival is one of Waikiki’s most popular block party events, celebrating Hawaii’s love for SPAM®, a canned meat from Hormel Foods. In Hawaii, you will find SPAM® at all grocery and convenience stores, many restaurants and in most homes in Hawaii.

Da’ SPAM JAM is great for all ages, as the event includes Hawaii’s top restaurants, two stages with free entertainment, and a variety of Hawaiian retailers. This is also a special event that benefits the Hawaii Foodbank, the largest non-profit in Hawaii that feeds the needy.

Take a look around their website for more information on this annual cultural tradition in Hawaii.

    I’m so jealous! I’ve never been to a Spam Jam. These started after I’d already moved away. I do so enjoy your coverage of the Spam Jams over the years. The menu looks solid. If I could be there and since my eyes would be bigger than my stomach, I’d have to narrow down which items I’d try first. You know, strategize. I’d skip of course the basics like Spam musubi, fried rice or noodles. I’d make a beeline for the Haupia Spam Cheesecake Cups, Spam Luau Stew and the Teriyaki monkey bread. I’m curious about Duke’s Hula Pie. I trust you’ll be at this year’s Spam Jam, taking one for the team and eating as much of the Spam menu as possible. Then sharing your expert opinion. Thanks for doing what you do!

      I’ll ask the event coordinator if they can move the SPAM JAM date back a week so you can attend it on your visit back home. I think I have enough clout to pull that one. lol
