The Hukilau in Hawaii is a community fishing party where everyone shares in the catch. The Hukilau event is a net cast across the world to bring in the Tiki fans to share in the history and culture.
Welcome to The Hukilau, an open lanai where you find many tiki events and treasures.
The Hukilau was started in 2002 by Tim Swanky Glazner and Christie June White, centered around Trader Vic's Atlanta. It was a huge success and The Hukilau was named event of the year by Creative Loafing Magazine. 30 or 40 people came from Florida to the event and they all said we must do this at the Mai-Kai.
In 2003 we moved The Hukilau to the Mai-Kai and Fort Lauderdale. The Mai-Kai welcomed us and just blew us away. We knew The Hukilau had found its home and it has remained there to this day, 10 years later!
2015 will bring new exciting Tiki experiences to the Mai-Kai!
