When to get there

The Waikele Center is open seven days a week, year-round. The center is open from mid-morning until late evening, but hours for individual stores vary so you should call or check specific store’s websites before heading out. The best day to visit is the first Friday of the month when, during the center’s “What the Truck?” event, dozens of food truck vendors set up shop on the grounds.
