Take your place at the table.  Join us for the 2014 Puna Culinary Festival on Hawaiʻi Island September 21st-28th!

The Puna Culinary Festival is your invitation to experience the cutting-edge, farm-to-fork practices of the Puna district, in concert with Hawaiʻi Island’s unique blend of cultural influences. The Festival joins together Hawaiʻi residents and visitors in a harmonious celebration of Puna’s vibrant, locally-grown produce and delectable cuisine.

The Puna Culinary Festival features locavore meals prepared with aloha by skilled chefs, cooking classes, workshops, film, market visits, farm tours, and other exclusive tastings and events. The 2014 Festival opens with a Hawaiʻian Style Kālua Pork Dinner at Kalanion Sunday, September 21, followed by DELICIOUS: A Feast for the Senses art show. The 2014 Festival culminates with the PupuPalooza appetizer competition on Saturday, September 27, where food enthusiasts will present a single appetizer in a judged competition and public tasting.

This not-for-profit festival is sponsored by Suisan, and stewarded by Kalani, where most festival activities will take place.  Various events during the festival will raise funds for Hawai’i Island Food Bank, an island-wide, supplemental food network that collects and distributes nutritious, high-quality food to the Big Island’s most vulnerable populations.
