Keeping the kids entertained is a big part of any trip, and one of the best activities to keep them busy is at an authentic luau on Oahu.

Not only that, you will have a great time too! Bring the kids to an authentic luau on Oahu, and you’re sure to have a great time.
One of the best luaus on Oahu is the Polynesian Cultural Center Luau, where the activities and fun are not only limited to the evening luau.

Culture and history is everywhere, and along with learning the heritage of Polynesia, they’ll have a blast at the luau that is complete with a captivating show.
Kicking off the evening’s festivities is an all you can eat buffet that you will surely be heading back to over and over again. Dishes that have been passed down from the earliest days of Hawaii like Kalua Pork and Poi are staples at a luau, along with fresh veggies and fruit, locally sourced fish, chicken, rice, and of course dessert. There is something for everyone, even the picky eaters.
After dinner, the show starts, and what a show it is! Performers tell the story of Ha, the saga of life, love, triumph, and tragedy through traditions storytelling, songs, dance, and the always-impressive fire-knife dancing. The show is captivating and a look at the way of life of ancient Hawaii and the Polynesian Islands. This is a show that you do not want to miss.
