Legacy Ballroom

Ballroom and Event Venue on Oahu

For larger events needing that perfect touch, there’s no better place than the Legacy Ballroom. It’s the ideal setting for banquets, wedding receptions, conferences and luaus. With a seating capacity of up to 800, the Ballroom can be divided into the Legacy I and Legacy II Ballrooms for smaller parties. It features a theatre stage (with professional lighting and large, retractable screen available at extra cost).

The tranquil Takakura Okinawan Garden, located just outside the Ballroom, provides the perfect backdrop for any event and is a popular setting for weddings and group photos.

Located in Waipio Gentry at the Hawaii Okinawa Center, the Legacy Ballroom is our premier banquet venue. It is especially convenient to the Leeward and Central Oahu areas, and is readily accessible via freeway from Honolulu.

A Catered Experience is the exclusive caterer for events at the Hawaii Okinawa Center in Waipahu.
