Get ready — Waikiki Spam Jam 2018 is taking over Kalakaua Avenue this Saturday with the largest, most Spam-tastic lineup EVER. Think crazy Spam creations from new vendors and not two, but three entertainment stages. Mini haupia Spam cheesecake cups. Spam luau stew. Spam kouign amann pastries. Spam gyoza and takoyaki.

The annual street festival celebrates Hawaii’s love for SPAM like nowhere else. It runs from 4 to 10 p.m. with awesome flavors, music, performances and pop-up retailers, and the awesome thing is that it benefits the Hawaii Foodbank, the islands' largest non-profit organization that feeds the needy.
