Will you be welcoming 2020 on Kauai? Poipu Beach Park is the place to be to celebrate New Year’s Eve!

Kauai’s biggest New Year’s Eve fireworks show and celebration is traditionally hosted by the Poipu Beach Resort Association.

Arrive early to enjoy local food from food trucks and a family-themed movie on a big outdoor screen.  All events will be held at Poipu Beach Park.

For a view of the fireworks from the ocean, Kauai Sea Tours is offering a couple of special New Year’s Eve cocktail tours to view the fireworks. See this link for more information.

For other New Year’s Eve events and dining options on Kauai, check with your concierge and pick up a copy of the local newspaper, The Garden Island.

As we bid farewell to 2019 and welcome the new year of 2020, we wish you a Hau’oli Makahiki Hou, which is the Hawaiian way to say Happy New Year!

  1. Hi,

    Would like to know if there will be fireworks this year on December 31st for celebrating the New Year 2016 in Poipu, Kauai, HI?

    Many thanks.

    1. It depends on how many people decide to park in the area. To secure a parking spot, it’s best to arrive sooner rather than later.

    1. Not sure what’s available now. Brennecke’s is right on Poipu Beach Park near where the entertainment will be. Other choices would be Tidepools at the Hyatt and the Beach House, though they’re not immediately by Poipu Beach Park. Tidepools is closer than the Beach House.

    2. PC, you could also look into the following restaurants, which are all a short walk to Poipu Beach Park.

      Keoki’s Restaurant
      Cafe Anuenue
      Bangkok Happy Bowl/ RocknRoll Sushi
      Puka Dogs
      Plantation Gardens

      Aloha and Happy New Year

  2. I would like to know if there are a New years Celebration with Fire Works In Kauai this year December, 31, 2017. I am staying in the Princeville area so prefer this area but please also let me know if there is celebrations in the other areas of the island.

  3. Hi

    I was just wondering about the time the fireworks start. On this page they mention sunset at around 8:15. Somewhere else they mention 9:20? Just wondering how to plan dinner


    1. We’re not sure where you’re reading that sunset is at 8:15pm. It’s much earlier than that – more than 2 hours earlier at the end of December.

      Fireworks are at 8:15pm per our source.

  4. I was at the fireworks last year. It gets very dark before the fireworks and it is easy to get separated from your family. My advice is to make sure everyone has flashlights so you can signal each other. Cell phones would help too, as would everyone having some idea of where your beach blanket/chairs are relative to some “landmark” (my landmark last year was the beach bathroom).

    Also – unless you get to the food trucks early, be prepared for very long food truck lines around, say, dusk.
