Ke Kani O Ke Kai


The Waikīkī 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 Hawai‘i’s top entertainers, ticket sales are announced via mailer to members first, then to the general public. Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the concerts begin at 7 pm 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 Waikīkī.
