Event Date:

November 5, 2023

Event Time:

11:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M.

Location:

Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa

Celebrate 13 years of the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival with a dim sum brunch to bring good luck and fortune, like the Year of the Rabbit! Despite what you’ve heard about the number 13, it’s actually considered a very lucky number in Chinese culture meaning ‘assured growth’ and ‘definitely vibrant’. Martin Yan, legendary chef and TV host of the popular cooking show “Yan Can Cook,” joins top chefs from across the country to create innovative bites inspired by traditional dim sum dishes meant to touch the heart. From steamed and pan fried to deep fried and baked, these seven chefs prove there’s more to dim sum than dumplings. Still feeling superstitious? Clear your energy and set your intentions with Feng Shui, tarot card, crystal healers and more, equipped with everything you need to welcome good luck into your life!

Registration for individual consultations with energy healers and Feng Shui specialists will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for ticket holders. An email will be sent to ticket holders to sign up at a later date.
