Festival and Gala production requires full-scale event production which ranges from coordinating multiple vendors and key entertainers to managing budgets, master to-do-lists and timelines, to recruiting sponsorships and handling attendee reservations.

With experience producing such distinguished celebrations as the Maui Onion Festival, the Honolulu Festival Friendship Gala, the Taste of Helumoa Food & Wine Festival, and the Hale ‘Aina Awards, Gourmet Events Hawaii brings a wealth of experience to its festival and gala clients.

Inviting event production experts to take the lead in festival and gala coordination, organizations can feel confident and relieved that all aspects of their large-scale gatherings are being attended to by veteran event professionals.


“Working with Kat and her team at Gourmet Events Hawaii was the best decision we made and a breath of fresh air.

My Board and I realized how much staff time was put into coordinating and organizing the event, taking away valuable time from our regular “day jobs”. We realized that hiring a professional event planner was more cost-effective than us trying to do it ourselves and having someone else in charge of running things that night, allowed myself and the staff to more fully enjoy the night and connect with the people attending.

Once we decided to hire someone, going with Gourmet Events Hawaii was a no-brainer. In their presentation to us, as well as the actual work product, they went above and beyond to assist us, all while conducting themselves in a professional, organized, and reliable manner. Of particular value to us as a non-profit was the multitude of contacts they have developed over the years of doing their work.
