A variety of artists, including award winning performers, will be playing, making it a full day of entertainment. Browse vendor booths featuring locally made goods and enjoy snacks and meals onsite in between performances. Giveaways will be happening throughout the day, including items such as artists’ CDs, t-shirts, and even a guitar!

Around the Area
The Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival is situated right along Kalapaki Beach. This east coast beach is great for swimming, enjoying a game of sand volleyball, or engaging in a variety of water sports. A break wall partially protects this bay from the larger ocean waves, making it an ideal spot for boogie boarding, beginner surfing, stand up paddle boarding, and canoeing. Kauai Beach Boys is onsite to offer convenient rentals and lessons. Spend the morning at the beach and the afternoon listening to music at the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival. After a full day of fun, head just across the street to a convenient vacation condo at Banyan Harbor.
