Buffet dinner
Showcased in the beautiful Wailua River State Park, the Smith family has been introducing visitors to the joyous luau celebration of food, music, and dance for over a century. Indulge in an all-you-can-eat Hawaiian buffet, including an imu ceremony. This traditional roast pig is dug up from its underground oven and quickly becomes the centerpiece of this elaborate meal.

Traditional entertainment
Once you’ve filled your plate with all the kalua pork and side dishes your plate can handle, talented musicians play classic and contemporary Hawaiian tunes. Then, as the meal winds down, you just might be invited onto the stage for a hula lesson! Finally, you’ll head to the torch-lit Lagoon Amphitheater for a pulse-pounding performance of dances and music from Hawaii and the numerous islands of Polynesia.
