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 Paniolo dinners 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 a pig roast, delicious eats, 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.
