Fusing all the things we love– food, shopping, music, art, cocktails and fun– Eat the Street (ETS) presents ‘Nonstop Kaka’ako’ street festival, an urban multi-interactive total pop-up retail, food and entertainment experience.
“Attendees will be able to satisfy all their senses at this street festival,” said event organizer Poni Askew. “Plus, we are excited to have this event designed by TLC’s Trading Spaces very own host and designer Lauren Makk.”
Food vendors nominated on the ‘Best of Nonstop Honolulu’s Best of’ list will be featured, along with many of ETS’ most ono food trucks and street food vendors.
There will be two stages, one for performances by Anuhea, Lost at Sea, Kainalu and Yoza. Our second stage, in the pop-up retail experience, will feature a catwalk for fashion shows highlighting the 18 participating retail vendors. DJ Taco will provide music in the ‘Ladies Lounge.’ Our pop-up shop will also feature a special indoor lounge with Sweet Bar, Champagne and Martini Bar, Beauty Bar and photo booth.
If you would rather play than pamper yourself, our Beer Garden and eatery hosted by HPELive will feature beer and wine, plus games and activities including a climbing wall, basketball hoops, dart games and virtual surfing on a large screen.
Or if the Man Cave is more your style, you can savor the festival’s sumptuous cuisine as you sip cocktails from the Gentleman’s Bar and watch UH football on the big screen. The Man Cave will also host a cigar bar and the hottest DJ tunes after the game.
But that’s not all! Our street festival Interactive Grown Up Art Space asks attendees to help create the largest mobile art piece in Honolulu hosted by Pow Wow’s own Jasper Wong. There will also be Interactive Kids Art Space, Slam Poetry and a DJ rocking the jams.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 22, for Eat the Street’s ‘Nonstop Kaka’ako’ pop-up block party taking place at 555 South Street in Kaka’ako from 4:00-10:00 p.m.
Admission to the street festival is FREE. Street parking can be found around the parameters of the event, as well as in the parking lot where the event is hosted. There’s also parking across the street at Restaurant Row.
Eat the Street hosts food truck rallies every last Friday of every month featuring a diverse range of food vendors.
