About the Ahi Lele Fire Show

The tiki torches are flickering and you feel the whisper of the warm tropical breezes. Then you hear the sound and feel the vibration of the blow of the conch shell. The Ahi Lele has begun. Journey through Hawaiian culture and history with fire dancing, storytelling, and the exhilarating beat of Polynesian drumming.

Our farmers market is growing as we continue to support local agriculture, local food distribution, local artisans and the local economy. The market now boasts over 40 vendors. All vendors feature Kauai Grown Produce or Kauai Made Crafts. We’ve expanded the market over three market places each featuring unique offerings from around the island.
