Signature Events

While we participate in a number of events throughout the year, the following events are annual or biennial events that are created and managed by HONOLULU Magazine.


Honolulu Magazine Hale Aina Awards

Since 1984, HONOLULU Magazine has honored the best restaurants in the islands with a gala reception and celebration.  Hundreds of Hawaii's best chefs and restaurateurs come together to learn what award they have won as they are announced at the annual Hale Aina Awards gala celebration. 

The event is a celebration in every sense of the word. The award-winning restaurants are treated to some of the finest fare from their award-winning peers. It invites all guests to EAT, DRINK, MINGLE and REPEAT, which is our recipe for a good time.


Top Dentists Celebration

Every year, HONOLULU Magazine presents a list of the top dental professionals in Hawaii. The list is generated by a professional research firm, topDentists™. In conducting the survey, topDentists™ approached all of the dentists in Hawaii registered with the American Dental Association and the Hawaii Dental Association and asked, “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?”



Best Lawyers Celebration

The lawyers who make this list are invited to a special cocktail reception to acknowledge their achievement in making this prestigious list and recognize this year's "Lawyers of the Year". The celebration is a valuable networking opportunity for our sponsors and a fun opportunity for the Best Lawyers to see a number of their colleagues, many of whom nominated them for this prestigious list.



Best Doctors in Hawaii

Every year, the doctors who make the Best Doctors in Hawaii list published in the June issue of HONOLULU are honored with a special event celebrating their acknowledgement on this prestigious list.

The event offers a chance for the doctors to catch up and celebrate with their peers who also made the Best Doctors® list. It's a valuable networking opportunity and a fun, enjoyable and casual atmosphere.
