Honolulu Night Market, the evening food and shopping event, returns this Saturday, June 17, 5 to 10 p.m., to celebrate the historic return of the Hōkūle‘a after its incredible three-year voyage around the world. Spanning Keawe and Auahi streets and Salt at Our Kaka‘ako, the event will host more than 40 of Honolulu’s favorite food and retail vendors, three stages of live entertainment and special, one-night-only screenings.

 

Here’s your guide to Kaka‘ako’s biggest, baddest (and, arguably, best-est) neighborhood block party to date.

Eating

Choose from 20-plus local vendors offering dinner and dessert. For savory bites, we’re thinking: pork belly buns (Bao Tao’n), deep-fried lumpia (C&K Lumpia) and a waffle dog (Hawaiian Waffle Dog), topped off with a bowl of pho (because we always say yes to The Pig & The Lady). For dessert: mini doughnuts (Pop Pop Donuts) and pies (Sweet Revenge), and poi mochi (Uncle Lani’s Poi Mochi).

 

Complete list of vendors: Bao Tao’n, Beyond Burgers Hawai‘i, C&K Lumpia, Donnie’s BBQ, El Chamo, Flavors of the World, Grinds 2 Da Max, Hawaiian Fresh Farms, Hawaiian Waffle Dog, Hula Shrimp Co., Istanbul, Koi Local Stop,Mimi’s Place, No Ka Oi Nosh, Olay’s Thai Food, Pop Pop Donuts, Sweet Revenge, The Pig & The Lady, Uncle Lani’s Poi Mochi, Uncle’s Kitchen, Wāimanalo Country Farms.
