HWTCAC is proud to host Waimea Town Celebration for its 43rd anniversary. Waimea Town Celebration is the longest-running festival on Kauai that celebrates our unique culture and history. It is a 9-day event filled with amazing local food, recreational events, music performances, competitions & contests, etc. My daughter’s favorite thing to eat here is the Manapua, which is short for, mea ʻono puaʻa, meaning “delicious pork thing.” It is an event for all ages!
Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian islands, making Waimea Town Kauai’s oldest settlement. January 20, 1778, is the day that the English navigator-explorer, Captain James Cook made his first landing in the Hawaiian Islands in Waimea. A beautiful monument is now there to mark this location. Waimea town is rich in history. It is a must-see stop if you are visiting Kauai. Not to mention, the annual rainfall for Waimea is 21.23 Inches, so if your North Shore adventure gets ruined by rain, head out to the West side for a chance at a sunny Kauai day!
