Paniolo [ pah-nee-oh-loh ] A person who herds cattle; cowboy.
Pāʻina [ pāh'ee-nah ] Meal, dinner, small party with dinner; to eat a pāʻina.
The meaning of Paniolo is steeped in a rich cultural tradition of Hawaiian ranching. Our weekly Paniolo Pāʻina 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.
