With Father's Day right around the corner, Travel Agent breaks down the latest events for families looking to celebrate dad in the Aloha State.
Celebrate Father's Day at Hilton Hawaiian Village's "BBQ Festival Weekend"
Foodies planning on celebrating Father's Day in the Aloha State should check out Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort’s "Honolulu BBQ Festival Weekend," featuring the “winningest man in barbecue,” pitmaster Myron Mixon, from June 17-18.
Myron has won more barbecue competitions than anyone else in the world and is the host of “Smoked,” executive producer and co-host of “BBQ Rules,” and star of two other hit television shows: “BBQ Pitmasters” and “BBQ Pitwars” on Discovery’s Destination America.
Combined with hotel room rates, this package could make for a great Father’s Day gift. The event on June 17 will feature a cooking class with the master himself, where participants will learn from Mixon how to prepare several classic barbecue dishes.
The celebration continues on June 18, where an impressive spread of barbecue favorites will line the great lawn at the Hilton Hawaiian Village for the Honolulu BBQ and Blues Festival.
Participants will savor their grilled favorites to the sounds of Hawaiian swing band Kahulanui, iconic contemporary Hawaiian band, Kalapana, and other special guest artists.
Father's Day Beerfest
Another option is to treat your father to a "beerfest."
At this event, guests can taste up to 20 different beers from Chimay, Maui Brewing Co., Gigantic Brewing Company and Belching Beaver Brewery, including food pairings while enjoying live entertainment.
BBQ Buffet and Concert at Waimea Valley
On June 19, Waimea Valley will host a BBQ buffet and free Aha Mele concert in honor of Father's Day. There will be free, same-day admission with each paid brunch. The Aha Mele concert is free and open to the community on the Main Lawn from 12 - 3 p.m. featuring Jerry Santos & Friends.
