The Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival has been resurrected! After a two-year sabbatical, SPAM® fans may once again savor delectable and inventive SPAM® dishes at Waikiki’s premier restaurants and neighborhood eateries as part of a new DINE-IN/DINE-OUT experience from April 22 – May 1, 2022. The Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival is expanded in this new style to create a longer and even more diverse SPAMALICIOUS event!

 

Historically, the Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival has been the state’s largest celebration of the state’s cherished canned pork. Participating establishments will provide at least one delectable SPAM® dish during this 18th anniversary celebration.

 

The Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival kicks off on April 23rd from 4:30pm to 8:30pm at Waikiki Beach Walk, with participating restaurants offering special menu items incorporating SPAM® products, live music, and SPAM® brand logo items, accessories, and other SPAM® brand-related items not found elsewhere in Hawaii for sale, as well as appearances by SPAMMY characters and friends.
