Saturday, November 17th, 2018 at 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm | Free

A family-focused event to bring the whole community together—that’s the goal of the Rice Street Block Party! There’s plenty to see and do, with artisans’ booths, live entertainment, dancing, food trucks and culinary specials from local businesses. A mural art-in-progress contest starring celebrated artists from Kauai and Honolulu will bring to life the plywood barrier in front of the former Salvation Army building at Rice and Kress streets (you can vote on your favorite!). A Keiki Zone at the Rice Shopping Center will feature fun, games and the guest appearance of Paulo, the historic Grove Farm train engine.
The Rice Street festivities take place from 4:00 to 8:00, but the party is happening much of the day in nearby Kalena Park, including a “Conquer Kalena” 3-on-3 basketball tournament for boys and girls divisions (5th through 8th grades). There will be food and drink at the park too.
Rice Street will be closed from Kalena Street to the Rice Shopping Center from 2:00 to 10:00 PM on Saturday November 17 for the block party. Free parking is available at the Kauai Civic Center parking lot and free shuttle service will transport party goers to and from Vidinha stadium from 4:00 to 8:30pm
