No, it’s not a community making jam out of Spam (but maybe that will make it on the schedule next year)—the Waikiki Spam Jam celebrates all things Spam with food trucks, merchandise, crafts and entertainment.

Free, May 3, 4–10 p.m., Kalakaua Avenue, spamjamhawaii.com.

Heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil in skillet over medium heat, place Spam pieces in skillet and cook, turning once, until golden brown.
