12th Annual Waikiki Spam Jam March 15, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Did not know there was such a thing, but what could be better than celebrating Spam on a May day in Hawaii?
The Waikiki SPAM JAM® is a street festival that celebrates the people of Hawaii’s love for SPAM®, a canned meat from Hormel Foods. In Hawaii, you will find SPAM® at all grocery and convenience stores, many restaurants and in most homes in Hawaii.
This street festival is great for all ages, as the event includes Hawaii’s top restaurants, two stages with free entertainment, and a variety of Hawaiian retailers. This is also a special event that benefits the Hawaii Foodbank, the largest non-profit in Hawaii that feeds the needy.
Please take a look around our website for more information on this annual cultural tradition in Hawaii.
