Come dressed in your casually yet chic summer attire as we kickoff the start of Summer 2020 with the 2nd Annual Newport Beach Luau at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort on Saturday, May 23, 2020. The special evening will feature tiki cocktail hour, delicious Hawaiian all-you-can-eat buffet with a Samoan Pig Ceremony, and traditional island entertainment.

Fun for the Adults and Children

“Newport Dunes did a flawless job of capturing the heart of a traditional Hawaiian luau, offering Southern California residents a chance to experience a new culture right here in Orange County.”

Ashley Ryan

“Newport Dunes’ event honors authentic Luau food and entertainment with Kane and Hula dancers, and the traditional pig ceremony. Learn the history of the luau told through music, dance, drums, and chants while enjoying a delicious Hawaiian-style dinner under the stars in the ultimate luau experience.”
