Mango Jam Honolulu was a two day event held from June 29 to June 30 that celebrated one of Hawaiʻi’s most beloved fruit the Mango.
Every year, local vendors from all over the island come up with new and creative mango inspired dish to share the “Taste of Island Culture”.
Not only were there a variety of mango inspired food to explore but various local goodies, activities, and entertainment to enjoy as well.
There was also a Mango Lounge where people could sip on some mango inspired cocktails and beers.
People were also checking out the array of vendors, as there were an endless variety of goods and services to be explored. There were farmers markets selling fresh fruit, vegetables, and jams; locally produced chocolate and coffee, and a variety of cute house plants and mango-scented beauty products to explore.
A few University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students were also spotted exploring the variety of vendors. Some were working at the stands, too. Pauline Yang, a travel industry management senior at UHM was there as one of the event coordinators for Mango Jam. Yang also works for the Honolulu City Council.
“I feel that the best part of Mango Jam is bringing everyone together from all sorts of demographics to enjoy and relax what we have to offer as a city and to experience the taste of island culture,” Yang said.
The event was hosted by the City and County of Honolulu.
