Guests are invited to gather on the museum’s iconic Great Lawn for a slow-cooked feast curated by chefs from local favorites Easy ‘Que, Nui Kealoha Catering, Sunset Texas Barbeque, Teddy’s Bigger Burgers and TEX 808 BBQ & Brews. Grilled and smoked menu items will be served alongside homegrown side dishes featuring the indigenous staple, ulu or Hawaiian breadfruit. In collaboration with the Hawaii Ulu Cooperative—a network of small-scale diversified farms on the Island of Hawaii committed to reviving this indigenous product and promoting it as a sustainable, nutritious staple food—participating chefs will showcase the versatility and deliciousness of this superfruit.

Attendees dine under the stars while enjoying the sweet sounds of Kamehameha Schools alumni and Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning singers/songwriters Na Leo and Keauhou. Connecting guests to Hawaii’s rich musical traditions, these two trios perform an inspiring lineup of mele that share the stories of our islands and illustrate the significant contributions local artists have made to the global music landscape. The evening is emceed by Brook Lee, 1997 Miss Universe and host of “Modern Wahine” who is also a Kamehameha Schools graduate. MANAOLA, a Hawaiian lifestyle brand creating indigenous artistry empowered by cultural values and ancestral knowledge, joins the event, creating a limited-edition Hawaii Food & Wine Festival pareo (wrap/scarf) for all ticket purchasers. A portion of the proceeds from each pareo will benefit a local aina based organization.
