The Waikiki Aquarium’s popular annual summer concert series offers visitors and residents an evening of live entertainment and food under the stars. The five-concert series is held on alternating Thursday evenings from mid-June through early August. Featuring some of Hawaii’s top entertainers, the Ke Kani O Ke Kai performance line-up is announced in the spring and ticket sales are announced via mailer to members first, then to the general public via the Waikiki Aquarium website and general media announcements. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the concerts begin at 7 p.m. Guests are encouraged to explore the Aquarium galleries that remain open throughout the evening and bring blankets/chairs to sit on the beach-front lawn – making this major fundraiser one of the best, and unique, ways to experience the Aquarium and Waikiki.
