Kaua‘i Steel Guitar Festival

Makai Bar Kanikapila

Nightly Kanikapila jam sessions were held in the hotel's casual dining and Makai Bar area on Friday and Saturday evenings after the hotel's entertainment finished. Guests from the festival and the Aloha Music Camp joined in at various times throughout the evening. Some of the open stage participants used the kanikapila to practice their presentations.
