Kauai New Year’s Eve Fireworks & Celebrations


The following information is from last year (2016/2017.) It is a good indicator of what might happen for New Year’s Eve 2017/2018, however, details are not usually confirmed until December. Once we have confirmation, we will update this page with the details. 

From New Year’s Eve 2016/2017

The biggest New Year’s Eve fireworks show and celebration in Kauai is hosted by the Poipu Beach Resort Association. This family-friendly event includes food trucks, food booths, a movie showing at the beach park and FIREWORKS! Per the Poipu Beach Resort Association Facebook page, the fireworks are set to begin at 8:15pm.

The holiday festivities run from 5:30pm to 9:00pm with food trucks, entertainment, kid activities and a spectacular display of fireworks. All events will be held at Poipu Beach Park. This New Year’s Eve event is free and open to the public.

For other New Year’s Eve dining options on Kauai, see OpenTable.com. Two of our favorite Kauai restaurants are Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt Kauai in Poipu and the Hukilau Lanai in Kapa’a.

As we bid farewell to the old and welcome the new year, we wish you a Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!


  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.

  2. Do you know if there will be enough parking available on site?

    • 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.

  3. what is the best place to eat prior to fireworks?

    • 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.

  4. Any fireworks on the North Shore?

  5. Heard there were fireworks in Kekaha at the Beach! Is this true? Thanks!

  6. What is the schedule of events for New year’s Eve 2017/2018 for Kauai?
    The current info is for 2016/2017.

  7. 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.
