Local luau on Big Island or Oahu?

We're going to be on Oahu and the Big Island in the next few weeks, and my darling husband really really wants to go to a luau. No amount of rolled eyes on my part will dissuade him. I can't imagine that any of the commercial luaus will be good (non commercial, non tinsel), but I'd love to be proven wrong. What I'd REALLY like is to find a local church or school who's doing a luau as a fundraiser. Anyone living on these islands who can point me in the right direction?

Thanks much!

  1. When you arrive, pick up a copy of the Honolulu Advisor and look in the classified ads. Find some church, or neighborhood lu`aus. Call any number, and inquire.

    Go to Foodland, and scan the bulletin board for notices of the same. Call the number.

    Good luck, and much aloha,
