The interactive luau will have guests participating in fun activities like basket and coconut-plate weaving and coconut shell dancing. Entertainment will also feature keiki fireknife dancers as well as songs and dances dedicated to the coconut tree, an important icon in Samoan culture.

“We are pleased to offer an affordable luau experience that includes a wide variety of activities and experiences the whole family can enjoy,” said Alfred Grace, President & CEO of the PCC. “Our Island Luau offers guests the opportunity to learn about several Polynesian cultures, particularly the Samoan and Hawaiian cultures, in a more personalized setting where everyone is encouraged to kick back, relax and enjoy our luau food, entertainment and activities.”

Presided over by the Samoan chief’s court, guests are welcomed to the Island Luau with a shell lei greeting and are able to enjoy Samoan versions of popular luau songs, such as the Hawaiian Wedding Song, and Samoan dishes coupled with popular Hawaiian luau foods, including a roasted pig.
