1. It’s a carnival!

This is the only time of year to experience amusement park rides on this scale. You’ll find rides and games to entertain toddlers to teenagers, brought by EK Fernandez. It doesn’t get closer to Disneyland on Kauai than this. Look for rides savings with the Saturday wristband special and discounted ride pricing on Sunday.

2. See what grows on the Garden Island

The Farm Fair is organized by farmers. Here you can introduce your child to exotic tropical fruits and vegetables from atemoya to vanilla and check out the bonsai and tropical flowers in the Exhibit tent. Visit the Master Gardeners tent in the livestock area to pick up starts for the garden, and take part in a keiki growing activity at the Kauai Grown demonstration area.

 3. Meet a Farm Animal and Visit the 4-H petting zoo 

Each year 4-H youth islandwide raise livestock for the Farm Fair, bringing their steer, hog or lamb for judging and auction, along with chicks for sale. The 4-H petting zoo lets the keiki experience the animals up close, holding chicks and bunnies, and petting lambs. This is a great way to support our future farmers and learn about farm animals.

 4. Look for Keiki entertainment and Sign up for a Contest

There’s plenty to entertain keiki at a trip to the fair. Get into the act onstage with a keiki talent show, keiki Olympics, and a healthy keiki parade on Saturday. Advance registration required for the KIUC Keiki Talent Show and the HMSA Healthy Keiki parade sign up on the Fair website. Drop in to participate in the Keiki Olympics or for older keiki volunteer for the hypnotist show. Don’t miss the new Kauai Family Magazine Superbooth to register for this year’s Cover Kids Search. 

 5. Enjoy Fair Foods and a Healthy Kauai Grown item or two

Indulging in malasadas, cotton candy and flying saucers are part of the fun. You’ll also find fresh choices like fruit cup, li hing mui apples and grilled steak or chicken. Look for the Kauai Grown sampling activities such as the Kauai Cattleman’s Association beef tasting on Friday night.

6. Pick up a Kauai Grown treat or keiki t shirt at the Kauai Grown tent
Meet the growers and product producers of Kauai Grown products, and pick up a Kauai Grown bag or cute logowear for keiki. This can also be a good place to pick up a healthy Kauai Grown snack or take something home.

Helpful Tips for Parents

Changing station – there is now a Fair changing station in between the restrooms, look for the sign. This can also be a more private place for nursing.

Hand washing – Don’t forget to wash hands regularly. Forget your wipes? In addition to the sinks at restrooms, you can also hand sanitizers at food booths and eating tents. All keiki and parents are asked to wash hands after visiting the petting zoo at the dedicated station.

Lost & Found – Every year items from sunglasses to phones are brought to the lost & found at the information booth (across from the Malasada booth at the entrance of the commercial tent)

Lost child – immediately report a lost child to the nearest security guard or police, or visit the information booth. Found keiki are brought to the information booth while parents are contacted. Please keep your child close and provide them with your contact number in case of separation.

Items not to forget – wear your sunscreen, bring wipes and drink plenty of water!
