WHO benefits?

about us

West Kauaʻi Business & Professional Association (WKBPA) is a non-profit organization of local entrepreneurs with a mission to encourage, promote and increase successful businesses; instill its members with a feeling of responsibility for the welfare of our residents; and to refurbish, maintain and manage historic sites on the West Side.

Waimea Town Celebration raises money for WKBPA projects like the Historic Waimea Theater and the continued restoration of the Hawaiian Fort at Pāʻulaʻula.  Non-profit organizations and community groups such as our local schools, hula hālau, canoe clubs and sports teams also have the opportunity to raise money, and for many, this is their largest fundraiser for the year.

RAIN OR SHINE, join us and become a part of our commUNITY tradition!


WKBPA is proud to host Waimea Town Celebration for over 41 years as well as the annual Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade (held the last Saturday before Christmas).  Our organization is also responsible for the refurbishment and management of the nationally registered Historic Waimea Theater; provided the historical and significant cultural facts on kiosks located throughout Waimea Town and the curators of the visual prominence restoration of the Russian Fort Elisabeth/ Hawaiian Fort at Pāʻulaʻula. Our latest project provides ADA access to Hofgaard Park where we were also responsible for the installation of the Welcome Wall and performance stage for community events such as our Music in the Park series.
