Mt. Hood Meadows celebrates Polynesian Cuisine at its third annual Polynesian Festival this Saturday, July 2. The Tumoana Dancers - a Tahitian dance group from Aloha, OR, will provide the flavor of Polynesia with live entertainment, Tahitian drummers and hula performances. The entertainment will be presented from 2 - 5 PM for those enjoying the Polynesian cuisine.
While the dancers will transform the volcano at Meadows to an island volcano - the featured menu celebrates some of the finest island foods prepared by our skilled culinary team. It’s hard to highlight the main course - as each course loaded with island flavors: Kalua Pork with coconut rice and stewed cabbage; Huli Huli chicken burgers on sweet Hawaiian rolls, pineapple with a sweet and spicy glaze - and that’s just for starters! A cold station offers three different styles of Tuna Poke, macaroni salad and tropical fruit salad. Polynesian meatballs marinated in a ginger, garlic and chili sauce and Manapua - BBQ stuffed streamed rolls. For dessert there’s coconut-pineapple ice cream and Hawaiian shaved ice.
The entire Polynesian Culinary Festival with the Tumoana dancer entertainment can be purchased online in advance for $45 for adults and $29 for kids 12 and under.
Mt. Hood Meadows offers a scenic chair ride and premier hiking experience Thursdays through Mondays through Labor Day, punctuated by weekend events and entertainment like the Polynesian Culinary Festival.
