Mark your Calendars, Thanksgiving in June!
Mark your calendars! This years Taste of Hawai'i, Kauai's signature event will be celebrating it's milestone 25TH silver anniversary. The event is always scheduled the first Sunday in June. (June 2,.2013) 11:30-3:30.
Taste is always special, however with this year being the 25th milestone silver anniversary there are many special events scheduled on and beyond the ultimate Sunday brunch. The brunch which features over 50 chefs strutting their signature dishes, 15 plus beer, wine and soft drink beverage vendors, 10 plus musical bands from Rock' roll to Big band, a silent auction and a Lappert's ice cream station all on one of the most beautiful properties on the Cosmic Garden Island, Smiths tropical paradise.
Taste of Hawai'i is not about "self" and how much you can eat and drink,it's deeper. "Taste" is a community event sponsored by the Kapa'a Rotarian's. All profits go towards scholarships for our local youth and fund international projects such as providing safe drinking water and sanitation in schools for people in poverty stricken areas around the world.
"Taste" is not only a taste of food but a taste of community, a taste of charity , a taste of fellowship and as locals call it , "a taste of dakine!"
Taste is about true Aloha.
Don't look at it as expensive, look at it as being free and you are donating $100 to an awesome and wonderful charity, which alone should make one feel alive.
A "Taste" is The sensation caused in the tongue by things placed on it, Synonyms for Taste are Flavor, savor love and fondness.
Taste is the ultimate Kaua'i experience, I like to call it call it Thanksgiving in June.
The gourmet grinds will have the locals chanting 2 popular Hawai'ian pidgin phrases, " Broke da mout" and "Wop da jaw" which translates to awesome, outrageous and delicious food.

Happy silver anniversary and a huge Mahalo Nui Loa to the Rotary club of Kapa'a, the chefs,vendors, musicians and the numerous volunteers making this all possible. To another 25 years of da Taste!
