Celebrate Hawaii’s most cherished grain at the 5th Annual Hawaii Rice Festival on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Ward Centers. Attendees can sample favorite rice dishes and concoctions prepared by local vendors, enjoy local entertainment, and even participate in a spam musubi eating contest.
The day-long festival will be held along Auahi Street, between Ward Warehouse and Marukai. A full day of activities will include professional chef cooking demonstrations, live entertainment and performances, and a Rice-ipe Cooking Contest to celebrate variations of rice — a cultural food staple.
As with tradition, the 5th Annual Rice Festival will graciously accept brown rice donations that will be given to Lanakila Meals on Wheels, the only island-wide meal provider for seniors.
Sponsors of the 2014 Rice Festival include Ward Centers and Lundberg Family Farms.
