December Events on Oahu
Sometimes in Hawaii it’s easy to forget when the holidays are just around the corner; while much of the world is preparing for a white Christmas, we are lounging on the lanais sipping Mai Tais in the sun. Okay, maybe we don’t spend every day in paradise relaxing, but we want to make sure you do while you’re on vacation! So, we’ve compiled a list of Oahu’s top events for the month of December. From holiday parades to historic celebrations there is something for everyone!
Honolulu City Lights
Honolulu Hale Dec. 2022
This annual celebration kicks off with the parade and tree lighting ceremony at the Honolulu Hale (City Hall). Large statues and light structures decorate the entire property for a month, creating a cheerful and exciting holiday spectacle viewable for the whole season. On opening night there are rides for the keiki as well as food vendors. Festivities begin around 4 pm.

WSL Haleiwa Challenger
Oahu Nov. 26 – Dec. 7
The pipeline is world famous for its beautiful barrel waves, and for all the fans on the beach, it’s popular too since the break is closer to the shoreline.
