What the Truck?! event debuts this Friday at Kakaʻako Makai

HONOLULU (August 11, 2022)– What the Truck?! is a new event debuting this Friday – Aug. 12, 2022 – at Kakaʻako Makai. The event, which runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., features food, shopping, and Hawaiian music at the old Fisherman’s Wharf location on the corner of Ward Avenue and Ala Moana Boulevard (1009 Ala Moana Boulevard) and is being hosted by landowner Office of Hawaiian Affairs and By My Standards, an event coordination company.

More than 35 locally owned, small business vendors are expected to participate, including retailers and a variety of food trucks serving hot and cold foods, desserts, pūpū, snack foods and non-alcoholic drinks.


Native Hawaiian musicians, The Camarillo Brothers, will be playing live from 6 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Kamaka and Kalaʻe Camarillo were recently featured at the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards along with their aunt, Lehua Kalima.

“We look forward to launching this new event and bringing community together in Kakaʻako Makai to support local food trucks, small retail businesses and to enjoy live performances from Native Hawaiian musicians,” OHA Board Chair Carmen “Hulu” Lindsey said. “It’s just another step that OHA is taking to revitalize the area and realize the vision of Kakaʻako Makai as a place that supports Hawaiian culture and commerce.”

The event is family and pet friendly, drug free, alcohol free, tobacco free, and vape free. OHA is providing free event parking at 919 Ala Moana (AAFES building lot).
