Poke fans and the island’s best poke shops will converge on Ala Moana Center for the second annual Honolulu PokeFest on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 4–8 p.m.
The event will take over the shaded parking section between Morton’s Steakhouse and Park Lane luxury condominium on the makai side of the mall. Poke lovers will feast on multiple poke selections from 15 poke shops including Alicia’s Market from Kalihi, Moiliili’s Ahi Assassins, The Hibachi from Kailua, Tanioka’s of Waipahu, downtown’s Aloha Poke Shop and Aloha Cones, Poke on Da Run from Pearl City, Kapahulu’s Hawaii Sushi and more.
Guests will vote on their favorite creation to determine the island’s best poke. The first-ever Poke Pound eating contest presented by nomnom, Hawaii’s newest convenience stores, will award a pair of round-trip tickets to Las Vegas to the fastest poke eater around.
A portion of event proceeds will benefit Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, a local nonprofit organization that educates and insipires communities to care for our coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups. They will be onsite to offer information and education and provide waste management.
Honolulu PokeFest is presented by Frolic Hawaii. It is organized by Events International with support from Anela, AT Marketing and Luna Hawaii.
