Celebrate Christmas in Polynesia at the Polynesian Cultural Center

O‘ahu’s North Shore will be filled with holiday cheer as the Polynesian Cultural Center celebrates the holidays with its Christmas in Polynesia event. The celebration will run from December 9–22, promising delicious island-style food, wholesome fun and live entertainment. Nightly events include Christmas Canoe Rides and a Scavenger Hunt at the Hukilau Marketplace.

Bring your keiki to the Polynesian Cultural Center to enjoy fun train rides. Rides are free for children ages 4 and under and only $3 for ages 5 and up. Photos with Santa will also be available daily.

Lä’ie will be expecting “Snow Days”, presented by Hawaiian Ice, on Friday and Saturday, December 16-17. The center will open its door to all from 6:30-9:30pm to build snowmen and snow angels or to have a friendly snowball fight at its Winter Wonderland Snow Day.

Christmas in Polynesia will also feature evening canoe rides on the Polynesian Cultural Center’s brightly lit freshwater lagoon. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday season as you float down the tranquil lagoon. Don’t forget to present proof of Ohana Club Membership to receive a free canoe ride from 6:30–9:00 p.m., Monday – Thursday.

Ohana Club Membership is Polynesian Cultural Center’s loyalty program designed just for Kama’aina and is completely FREE to join and provides local residents with exclusive offers and deals to visit the Polynesian Cultural Center and Hukilau Marketplace.

After experiencing the Christmas festivities around the center, end your night at Pounders Restaurant for dinner and of course, dessert from Tutu’s Sweet Shop. During Christmas in Polyneisa, the Hukilau Marketplace will treat guests to live entertainment each night.

Decorated with holiday trimmings and offering free admission, parking and WiFi to guests, the Hukilau Marketplace will offer holiday specials with discounts up to 50% off the retail value. Guests can also complete their holiday shopping at more than 40 shops, carts and kiosks at the Polynesian Cultural Center and Hukilau Marketplace.
