All About Aloha Stadium
Hawaii is filled with incredible sightseeing, amazing scenery, and some of the most picturesque locations you can imagine. Among them, are famous beaches and iconic landmarks, and hidden places that will take you by surprise. One of the places that many do not event think of visiting is one of the most important venues in all of Hawaii, and a place that has much to offer. It may not be as iconic as Diamond Head or Waikiki Beach, but Aloha Stadium is vitally important to Oahu.
Found in Halawa near Pearl Harbor and not to far from the airport, Aloha Stadium is the largest venue in Hawaii, and has played to host to pretty much any event that you can imagine. From concerts to baseball games, this place has seen it all; and that doesn't even take into account the events that it is most known for. In the 90’s, the stadium was host to icons Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, and also was the site of a regular season baseball game, hosting the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals for a 3 game series. U2, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Frank Sinatra have all played to sold out crowds at the stadium.
The stadium was constructed in the 1970’s and opened in 1975, creating a much needed venue for the minor league Hawaiian Islanders baseball team to play, and giving the University of Hawaii football team a permanent home, with enough capacity to hold large crowds that flock to games. In addition to home games for Rainbow football, the stadium is the site of the Aloha Bowl, played each December, and formerly the host of the Hula Bowl, the predecessor to the Aloha Bowl.
On weekends, the stadium parking lot is where the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet is held, giving visitors a place to find affordable souvenirs, and local vendors a place to conduct business. Many great tours head to the Swap Meeting following a morning at Pearl Harbor, giving visitors a ride to the best place for souvenirs and a chance to interact with the locals.
Aloha Stadium is known throughout Hawaii, and is considered a landmark. The stadium helps to draw the top musical artists in the world to Hawaii, giving an appropriate place to play, with plenty of seats to accommodate the demand. If you are visiting during football season, check out a University of Hawaii football game, or just come for the Swap Meet.
