#HNLnightmarket HOME – Parking Map








SALT at Our Kaka‘ako marks two milestones on the evening of June 17, with a celebration full of fun and culture. Our Kaka‘ako presents the SALT at Our Kaka‘ako Dedication Celebration: featuring Honolulu Night Market and the Polynesian Voyaging Society Hōkūle‘a Homecoming, from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m.


The celebration officially dedicates SALT at Our Kakaʻako, which has evolved as a community gathering place that features an exciting mix of retailers, restaurants and discoveries. Our Kakaʻako will host two stages of live music and entertainment throughout the event. The highly-anticipated lineup features the dynamic ukulele duo Honoka and Azita, Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winners Kupaoa, Waipuna, and Kapena, local favorite Kimie Miner, and ukulele mastermind Taimane.

Artists who helped create SALT at Our Kakaʻako’s unique look will also be honored, including Kamea Hadar, co-founder from POW! WOW! Hawaii. Other recognized artists include Matthew James, Matt and Roxy Ortiz, and Santiago Otani.

Our Kakaʻako also welcomes the return of the Honolulu Night Market. Keawe and Auahi Streets will be closed off to feature a variety of your favorite food and retail vendors, live music, live fashion show by Rance China and more! Visit the Honolulu Night + Market Facebook page for a list of vendors, parking details and updates on the event.

We’re also celebrating the return of the Polynesian Voyaging Society (PVS) canoe Hōkūle‘a, after a three-year voyage around the world. Bring the family and watch a special screening of highlights from Hōkūle‘a’s journey as it’s shown in the courtyard at the Flats at Pu‘unui, located at 440 Keawe in the innovative Our Kakaʻako. Meet some of the crew members, as they’ll be on-site answering your voyage questions! Then, stay and watch Disney’s acclaimed animated film “Moana” as it will also be shown on a large screen. Attendees can also partake in the following promotions where a portion of the proceeds will support PVS.

  • Moku Kitchen: Dine between the hours of 5:00 – 10:00 p.m., and two percent of the sales will benefit PVS.
  • Village Bottle Shop & Tasting Room: Proceeds from the sale of the special Kahiki beer will be donated to PVS.
  • 18|8 Men’s Salons: Purchase a service between the hours of 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., and 10 percent of the sales will benefit PVS.

Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market



Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market

This past weekend, Honolulu Night Market hosted the 5th annual Anti Canvas boardshort charity art event, and we went down during the set up to give you a look at tsome of the submissions.



Hurley and Contrast Magazine presented the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity on Saturday December 21, 2013 at Honolulu Night Market: Rogue Christmas

 Proceeds benefitted Waves For Water and their efforts in the Philippines with victims of Typhoon Haiyan as well as the Hawaii Foodbank. Entry is free and doors open at 6 pm for the art show and silent auction.

The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity utilizes “sublimation” to transfer original artwork from 25 local and international artists onto a pair of Hurley Phantom boardshorts. This manufacturing method preserves the integrity and details of the original artwork and designs. Some of the top artists this year include John John Florence, Clark Little, C.R. Stecyk III, Tim Hendricks, Keoni Payton, Aaron Kai, Carl Pao and Dana Paresa. Please find a full list of artists participating in the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity below.

This unique art event raised over $18,000 dollars for various charities since 2009.

Heres a look at a couple of this years submissions.

#HNLNightMarket Spotlight: Above Reproach & other entertainment



#HNLNightMarket Spotlight: Above Reproach & other entertainment

Honolulu alternative rock band ABOVE REPROACH will be playing the Main Stage from 9:30-10:30 p.m. this Saturday. If you’ve never heard of these guys before, here’s a quick intro, in the form of a brief interview with bassist and singer Jake Lenchanko.

Give us a few words to describe the “vibe” of your music.

We have a rock sound that believes that everyone should have a equal voice in this world and that “not one is greater than the other.” We stand up for truth because we’re tired of the lies.

Who’s in the band, and what do they play?

Derek Barbadillo is our heartbeat of a drummer, Seth Lenchanko play the guitar and sings and Jake Lenchanko plays bass and sings.

What has Above Reproach been up to lately? Any albums, new music, shakeups?

We’re in the final stages of recording our debut album, “Radio Interference,” which will be out next year.

What do you think of Night Market and the growth of the Kakaako district?

We heard a lot of great things about Night Market and can’t wait to perform! It’s always great when new venues pop up that are family oriented too.

The Schedule:

JacqRiot: 6-7 p.m. on the Main Stage

Jacqueline Govan, an electro/r&b Los Angeles recording artist working on her first EP, The Riot is Here , brings her energy to the Night Market stage before a set at The Fix Saturday night.

Fashion Show by Salt + Sand: At 8 p.m. on the Main Stage
