Mark your calendars—the first Honolulu Night Market of the year is slated for Saturday, June 3, from 5 to 10 p.m. With the theme “Mahina Māhealani,” this block party is inspired by the Hawaiian lunar calendar. Māhealani is the 16th lunar phase and the last of the four Hawaiian full moons. Learn about the cultural significance of the moon in Hawai‘i with activities like conversations with astronomers, moon phase readings and viewing the moon through high-quality telescopes.


You may remember the market taking place every month pre-pandemic, but that has changed. Moving forward, Our Kaka‘ako plans to hold these events twice a year, once during the summer and again during the holidays. The block party is also starting an hour earlier than the last two Honolulu Night Markets at 5 p.m. rather than 6 p.m.

Where To Park

There are three parking garages nearby: The Flats at Pu‘unui parking garage at 440 Keawe St., the Salt at Our Kaka‘ako parking garage at 333 Keawe St. and the Waterfront Plaza parking garage at 500 Ala Moana Blvd.


Our Kaka‘ako Parking

Plan to arrive early for the most parking options. The Flats at Pu‘unui and the Salt at Our Kaka‘ako parking structures can receive validation from an Our Kaka‘ako business. The rates for these two parking structures are free for the first hour, $1 for a second hour, $3 for a third hour and $3 per half hour or fraction thereof from the fourth hour on. Parking without validation after the first hour is $3 every half hour or fraction thereof.


Coin-operated metered street parking is also available.


Waterfront Plaza Parking

If the Our Kaka‘ako parking garages are full, Waterfront Plaza is a good option just a block away. Visit the KUMU 94.7 booth across from the Coral Street beer garden to receive parking validation for Waterfront Plaza with the special event flat rate of $3 from 5 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.


The regular rate is $3 per half hour and $33 max all day. The fee for a lost ticket is $33. To access the parking garage, enter on South Street and Pohukaina Street. Pay at a parking payment machine before returning to your vehicle or on the way out of the garage. Only credit and debit cards are accepted.
