​​February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s certainly one of the most fun-filled. From Lunar New Year-themed celebrations and goods welcoming the Year of the Tiger to both romantic and platonic Valentine’s Day specials, there’s plenty of love and good fortune to go around during your next visit to Waikiki Beach Walk.

To top it all off, February is known as Hawaiian Language Month, encouraging people to learn and incorporate the Hawaiian language into their day as a means to honor the culture of the islands. Read on to see what upcoming events and promotions we have in store!

Our global art dealer, Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery located on the first floor facing the Plaza Stage, will be kicking off the Lunar New Year festivities with a free beach bag, a small artwork, and a $250 art credit in a lucky red envelope available to visitors from February 1st until February 7th.

On Saturday, February 5 at 4:00 p.m., please join us at Waikiki Beach Walk for a traditional lion dance and firecracker show to ring in the Year of the Tiger. Considered an auspicious animal, lions represent power, wisdom, and superiority in Chinese culture. The lion dance — carried out by costumed performers to an invigorating drum beat — helps chase away evil spirits and attract prosperity while making the overall atmosphere feel electric. It’s sure to be a vibrant and exciting day to visit the shopping center.

The luxurious event takes place on Saturday, February 12th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. and invites guests to join the curators of Park West for a night at the museum filled with the finest art, wine, and chocolates. Make it a night to remember as you taste truffles next to a Toulouse-Lautrec and sip red wine while admiring the work of Rembrandt.

As they say, the best things in life are free and that includes this event! Complimentary wine and chocolate will be provided to those aged 21 and over with a valid ID. Guests will also receive a complimentary unframed artwork just for attending. Be sure to RSVP by emailing as spaces are limited.
