The Fair is in the air! Join the Kauai County Farm Bureau this weekend August 24th to 27th for the largest annual event that Kauai has to offer. Located less than 15 minutes from our Courtyard by Marriott Kaua’i at Coconut Beach, the Kauai County Fair has been providing families with a great way to connect with their community since 1968. Children under 3 years of age are granted free admittance and general admission ranges from $2 for kids (4-12) to $5 for adults. Seniors also receive a special discount and are offered $4 admission. EK Fernandez Shows will be providing rides and concessions with special reloadable “Fun Passes” to keep your evening entertainment rolling.

Come join the Fair’s massive range of events ranging from nightly $500 Blackout Bingo to the first annual Karaoke Country All-Stars contest! Sponsored by Kauai’s Country AM570 & 104.5FM, first place will net you a cool $500, with second place and third place being awarded a Karaoke machine and voice lessons respectively. Friday night will host Kauai Coffee’s 8th annual Celebrity chef cook-off! The public is invited to join sides with the competition’s judges in tasting the best dishes Kauai has to offer. A $30 buy in for this event lets you try the locally sourced creations, and participants can leave feeling better about their homeland with the $2,000 prize being donated to a charity of the winners choice. Be sure to stop by and say “aloha” to executive chef Lucas Sautter representing our very own Voyager Lanai restaurant!

With 14 bespoke rides and attractions there’s sure to be plenty to satisfy those seeking thrills. This year marks the debut of a new ride to the Kauai County Fair: Seven Seas. This spectacular platform ride carries riders left to right and over the top in a fast paced motion. As riders crest the top they experience weightlessness as they return to the base of the ride. Come for an early-bird special on Saturday, Noon to 4pm, to receive discounted rides, with every admission being lowered to 35 credits. On Sunday fairgoers can also enjoy all 75 credit rides being discounted to 60 credits from noon to closing.

The competition never stops with a new contest happening every day! While Thursday night hosts the aforementioned karaoke contest, there is still plenty more to compete in all weekend long. Be sure to bring your best produce for this year’s annual Fruit and Vegetable show, with winners taking home ribbons and prize money! All specimens are judged on uniformity in color, shape, and characteristics. If agriculture and singing aren’t your forte, don’t fret – Alaska Airlines will be sponsoring a selfie contest all weekend long. Participants are encouraged to take a “fun selfie at the fair” between August 24th and 27th. Participants may then post their selfie to Instagram, tagging both @Kaui_County_Farm_Bureau and @AlaskaAir along with the hashtag #AlaskaAirlines. Winners will be selected randomly and announced on Tuesday, August 29th on the Ron Wiley morning show on KONG FM 93.5/94.5/105.5FM and posted on the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair Instagram account.

Wrap up your journey with a visit to the 4-H Livestock Tent. Open from 6pm on Thursday to 2:30 on Sunday, the 4H tent offers a glimpse into the best of Kauai’s Agriculture. The 4-H Tent offers a petting zoo for kids ($2 admission), as well as livestock shows and auctions. For those who have ever wished to harvest their own eggs, the 4-H tent is going to be offering a variety of egg-laying livestock for sale to the public. Most notably will be Cinnamon Queens chicks which lay roughly 320 eggs per year. Chicks are $5 each and you must bring your own container for transportation.

The Kauai County Fair may only come once a year, but that doesn’t mean you can only experience our beautiful island this weekend! Currently we are offering an early booking special of 15% off for stays between September and December. Book now and discover makes Kauai such an amazing place to stay!
