EAT THE STREET.

4:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The first “Eat the Street” food truck rally was held in 2011 in a small parking lot on Kapiolani Boulevard. With a turnout of over 1,500 people, many trucks and vendors sold out of their food, sparking an idea that caught fire, becoming what is now a much anticipated, monthly event for the public.

We are thrilled to partner with Eat The Street as we close off this inaugural Wedding Week at Kaka'ako Park. Together for the first time, Hawaii's top food trucks and Hawaii's top wedding caterers will be in one place bringing worldwide cuisine to the heart of Kaka‘ako!
