HONOLULU (KHON2) — After a two-year hiatus, the Waikiki SPAM JAM® Festival is returning this month with a new format supporting local restaurants to celebrate Hawaii’s favorite canned meat.
Instead of a one-night block party, the event will be celebrated for nine days from April 22 through May 1, featuring restaurant dining promotions, live music and SPAM items you can’t find anywhere else.
This year, the event will pivot to an in-restaurant event. Local restaurants participating will feature at least one delicious SPAM dish between April 22 and May 1.
