Are you ready for Punahou Carnival? Getting anxious about parking? Get this years carnival information here – Punahou Carnival, and learn about the best Punahou Carnival Parking spots below.
1Shriners Hospital for Children – Honolulu
We have 7 spots on the list for Punahou Carnival Parking, but this one should be first on everyones list.
Its just a short walk along the monkey pod lined Punahou St. and you are at the main carnival entrance. Heading back you can walk off the malasadas and teri-burgers you were supposed to save for later anyway, right?
All the side streets will be packed and both left turn lanes on the Punahou exit will be slow, why not turn right at the exit, park, and stroll by all the cars still at the light? In addition to the close proximity they have security and if you keep your receipt….its a donation for tax purposes.
One of the few locations that allows IN&OUT options for parking, be sure to ask the attendant. This location usually stays open till midnight if you plan on “closing the carnival down”.
The website does not have any times or information but they update their Facebook page each year. Shriners Children Hospitals Honolulu
2Maryknoll High School
Maryknoll Schools offer two Punahou carnival parking spots, this one is at the high school – 1402 Punahou St. (map is clickable)
The Maryknoll High School parking is run by various clubs and athletic groups fundraising for different events throughout the year. Literally one block from the main entrance to the carnival its grade school location is the only one closer. Support Punahou students and Maryknoll students all in one day.
If you live west of Punahou St. or take the Pali Hwy, Likelike Hwy, H3, then this is the easiest “Im out of here!” parking. Right next to the freeway on ramp it cant be beat.
This one sells out every year and they don’t really advertise except for signs outside, keep an eye out. They do update information on their Facebook page and list contact numbers. Check this link out if you need to Maryknoll High School Facebook Page
3Maryknoll Grade School
This is it, the closest Punahou Carnival parking thats not on the street and legal.
The map above, which is clickable for more detail, shows the marker on Dole street but the entrance is via Alexander St. and the parking is closer to Wilder Ave. This parking is always sold out early, always.
Run by the Sacred Heart Church & Saint Pius X Church you can visit their website for general information. Their Facebook Page also has up to date information and contact numbers. Just like the High School parking you will see signs the day of carnival with amounts and times.
4Catholic Charities Hawai’i
Too far you say? Hahaha! This must be your first time to Punahou Carnival.
Join hundreds of others on a leisurely stroll through Makiki towards the carnival. You can head directly down Nehoa St., Dominis St., or Wilder Ave., all lead towards the good smells and carnival sounds.
If you have questions or want to contact them directly here is their Facebook page link with contact information. Catholic Charities Hawaii
5The Parish of St. Clement
The Parish of St. Clement is right next to Makiki Park at 1515 Wilder Ave.
The Punahou Carnival parking fundraiser is their biggest of the year and helps support much of what they do.
This is one of the few parking locations that allows an IN&OUT option if you need that. Come early and get your parking spot, leave, grab the kids from school and come back with your spot still waiting for you. They also offer a 2 day parking option if you are going on both days.
Only a short, level walk, to the main entrance of the carnival at Punahou & Wilder. They maintain a Facebook page with contact information here The Parish of St. Clement
6Lutheran Church of Honolulu
Right on Punahou St. across from the campus this parking spot is not only close but usually the least expensive of those listed.
There are two entrances available for parking at this location. Once entrance is on Dominis St. and the other is on Poki St., between Dominis and Nehoa (map is clickable for a more detailed look).
This is one of the church’s major fundraising events and benefits their music and youth programs. The have information with times and cost on their website here Lutheran Church of Honolulu.
7Central Union Church
The easiest in and out parking if you are heading mauka on Punahou St. and the easiest exit onto the freeway heading east.
This is another location that keeps their price low for an all event parking pass and supports a good cause. Probably the most beautiful place to park for Punahou Carnival.
Information on parking, times and cost can be found on their Facebook page here – Central Union Church of Honolulu
