Kauai Brewers Festival

There's nothing like drinking beer and supporting a local nonprofit as you do it. Throw in the bonus of being in a tropical paradise in springtime, along with the fact that the nonprofit in question is all about protecting and preserving the culture of said paradise. It gets pretty hard to argue with.

This precisely describes what is in store for Kauai visitors this April. Kauai Brewers Festival is a fundraiser for Kamawaelualani and will be held at the Kauai Philippine Cultural Center. Sponsors include Salty Wahine, Crazy Shirts, and Kauai Island Brewing Company - who compellingly identify themselves as the "world's westernmost brewery." 

Indeed, that may, in all likelihood, make this the world's westernmost brewer's festival, and it is yours to attend this April in Lihue - of course, so long as you're over 21.

In addition to beer, there will also be food, live music from Kauai Kollab, Cruz Control, and Chanel Flores. and other fundraising games/contests like beer pong, cornhole, and Portuguese horseshoe.

When: Saturday, April 15th, 2 PM to 6 PM
Where: 4475f Nuhou St, Lihue (Kauai Philippine Cultural Center)

Makai Music & Art Festival

In April, the Makai Music & Art Festival in Princeville will feature different musicians and locally made goods every Wednesday. 

Located at the Princeville Makai Golf Club, the setting for this festival could not be more picturesque. Despite the world-class scenery, however, parking for this event is free!

In addition to a broad and intriguing range of local artists (Alia Photography, LaBelle Lifewear, and Charka Ascension Jewelry, to name a few), there will also be food and drink served by Makai Grill - including a signature Makai Tai and Makai burger. 

There are 4 Wednesdays in April this year - the first landing on the 5th. Makai Music & Art Festival will be open for each of them from 1 PM to 5 PM.

When: Wednesdays, April 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th, 1 PM to 5 PM
