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.

To protect our guests and staff, the Hawaii Okinawa Center Legacy Ballroom is closed until further notice. We are closely following CDC guidelines and will reopen once allowed by the State Government. For our State’s reopening strategy, visit (ballrooms are considered Structured Events).

Reservations can be made up to 14 months in advance (E.g. On April 1, 2021, we are taking reservations up to the end of June 2022). Please feel free to email us if you have any questions. We are tentatively accepting reservations for future events but no guarantee can be made until the State allows for Ballrooms to be reopened.
