This year marks Pacific University’s 60th annual Lū’au and Hō‘ike, a festive event that celebrates the culture of Hawai’i with food, entertainment and goods from the islands. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, April 11.
The event always sells out, so the time to buy a ticket is now.
Limited floor seating is available. Floor seats are $40 with the meal, or $35 for the show only.
Reserved bleacher seats are $34 with the meal, or $29 for the show only. Discounts are available for Pacific alumni, employees and students, as well as for senior citizens and young children.
Dinner is served in the University Center from 4:30 to 6 p.m., and the show begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Stoller Center. Dinner features Kālua Pig, Teriyaki Chicken, Chicken Long Rice, Haupia, Poi, Coconut Cake, and Lū‘au Punch.
A favorite feature of the annual Lū’au and Hō‘ike is the Country Store, where buyers can snag fresh pineapple, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, coffee, leis or other gifts from Hawai’i. The store opens in the Stoller Center on April 11 at 10 a.m. and remains open until 4 p.m., then reopens at 5:30 p.m. and continues through the show’s intermission.
Lū’au and Hō‘ike is presented by Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i. The event is the only completely student-run and student-directed lū‘au in the Northwest, attracting about 2,000 people every year.
