Queens’ MarketPlace is hosting its school with a Back-to-School Bash on Saturday, Aug. 7, from 11 am to 4 pm.

Families can find exclusive discounts, while keiki can participate in outdoor games and a chalk art activity. For parents seeking to save on back-to-school gear, a 25%-off savings pass can be redeemed at participating merchants and downloaded from the Queens’ MarketPlace website. Shoppers who spend a minimum of $100 throughout the mall are eligible to receive a free gift (face mask pouch, stainless steel water bottle and hand sanitizer) as an appreciation gift for shopping locally at Queens’ MarketPlace.

All first responders and firefighters battling the Mana Road brush fire this week will be presented with the gift pack as a mahalo for their vital services also, no purchase necessary.

A tropical school bus mural will be painted on the Queens’ MarketPlace sidewalk by local artist Shaina Coey over the weekend. During the Back-to-School Bash, keiki are invited to channel their inner artist and help complete the mural with vibrant chalks, provided for free in the Coronation Pavilion.

Radio host from KWXX-FM, G. Cruz, will be broadcasting live from the Coronation Pavilion from 11 am to 4 pm, keeping shoppers inspired by playing the island’s favorite tunes, plus providing giveaways and special announcements.


To help keep everyone safe this school year, North Hawai’i Community Hospital is hosting a Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic the same day. Guests can receive a free vaccine between 10:30 am and 1:30 pm at the clinic located in the Food Court. A $25 Queens’ MarketPlace gift card will be presented to the first 25 people to receive their vaccine, and the first 50 to receive their vaccine will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card.


Public safety is critical to the Queens’ MarketPlace. The use of face masks and social distancing protocols as outlined by the Hawai´i State Department of Health (DOH) are required at the Queens’ MarketPlace, which adheres to all COVID-19 safety guidelines provided by the Hawai´i State Department of Health (DOH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and State and County government proclamations.
