Poke Contest

Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

Poke Contest

From family BBQ’s to fancy restaurants, everybody’s got their favorite way to make Poke, Hawaii’s traditional pūpū or side dish that mixes fresh fish or seafood, with all kinds of add-ins: the seasonings, herbs and spices, fruits, veggies, seaweed and secret ingredients that make it so special. The Poke Contest gives home cooks and top chefs a chance to show off their best recipes in four different categories (traditional, soy sauce, cooked and seaweed), and to compete for cash and prizes. Best of all, once the judging is finished, the audience gets to sample the competition and taste-test for themselves.

Clyde “Kindy” Sproat Falsetto Concert

05:30 pm
Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

Clyde “Kindy” Sproat Falsetto Concert

This unique concert features the Island’s talented male singers of all ages, who lift their voice into the upper register and captivate the audience with the stories behind the songs.

The concert is named for the late singer, guitarist and storyteller, Kindy Sproat, perhaps best known for his paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) songs and stories. Sproat grew up in a remote valley in the North Kohala District and went on to sing at Carnegie Hall, the National Folklife Festival and more. His musical legacy is an honor to share and perpetuate.

Monthly Mini Concert Series - LifeinPursuit

6:00-8:00 pm
Queens' MarketPlace
Coronation Pavilion

Monthly Mini Concert Series - LifeinPursuit

Free LIVE MUSIC, 6:00 - 8:00PM at the Coronation Pavilion.

The central idea behind the band LifeinPursuit is that of a constant motion, a fervent endeavor of life, love, God, and the unknown. That is the focal point of the three-piece group hailing from the Hamakua Coast on The Big Island of Hawaii. LIP’s music is best described as laid-back, rhythm-based acoustic rock with tinges of hip-hop, reggae, blues & pop. LIP plays mostly originals, with lyrics ranging from complex and deep-thinking to simple and playful.

Dusk 6:30-9:00 pm
Queens' MarketPlace
Coronation Pavilion

Once a month, you’re invited to bring a beach chair or blanket for a free outdoor movie at dusk at the Coronation Pavilion.

September special exclusive event! Two award-winning made-in-Hawai`i films:

Under the Blood Red Sun

December 7, 1941 - On a Sunday morning, TOMIKAZU (TOMI) NAKAJI and his best friend BILLY DAVIS are playing baseball in a field near their homes in Hawaii when the Japanese launch a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. As Tomi looks up and recognizes the Blood-Red Sun emblem on the fighter planes, he knows that his life has changed forever. Soon, his father and grandfather, both Japanese Americans, are arrested and taken to internment camps. His mother loses her job because she is Japanese. Although Tomi feels frightened and ashamed of his native land, he is quickly forced to become the man of the family. “Under the Blood-Red Sun” is an unforgettable tale of courage, honor, survival and friendship.

Director: Tim Savage
Writer: Graham Salisbury (as Graham Sandy Salisbury)
Stars: Kyler Ki Sakamoto, Kalama Epstein, Dann Seki
