Paniolo, A Hawaiian Cowboy Lūʻau

The Stables at Turtle Bay


Welcome to Turtle Bay's NEW weekly entertainment dinner, named "Best Dinner and a Show" by Modern Luxury Hawai'i. Set against a backdrop of Turtle Bay’s The Stables and the ocean, these dinner shows celebrate Hawaii’s rich ranching and cowboy heritage.

Paniolo [ pah-nee-oh-loh ] A person who herds cattle; cowboy.

The meaning of Paniolo is steeped in a rich cultural tradition of Hawaiian ranching. Our weekly Paniolo dinners will pay homage to the Hawaiian cowboy heritage with roasted pig, delicious eats including vegetarian options, welcome cocktail, live entertainment and a cash bar made from vintage horse trailers. Plus, fun activities for the keiki, including a pony meet and greet and hula lessons. At Turtle Bay, the highlight of any visit is to experience a Hawaiian Paniolo Dinner.
