The 11th Annual Maui County Agricultural Festival, Maui’s prime event to raise awareness about Maui ag while invigorating Maui ag, will take place on Sat., April 7th. The entire industry, its allies, and supporters come together on the lū‘au grounds of Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapū to share what each group does for the collective good of agriculture in the County, and to showcase ag’s vital role in the economy, environment, and lifestyle of Maui.
Hosted by Maui County Farm Bureau (MCFB) in partnership with County of Maui’s Office of Economic Development, generous sponsors and industry allies, here is the opportunity to learn about agricultural issues and their impact on our day-to-day lives.
Event hours are 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; admission is $5 for adults (kupuna 65 and over free and keiki under 18 free as well). Free parking.
Families won’t want to miss this year’s “Maui Legacy Pancake Breakfast” from 8 am – 11 am. It’s bingo, a raffle and time to honor four Maui farmers who have contributed greatly to Maui’s agricultural industry.
One of the big highlights this year is the expanded “Keiki Zone” complete with bouncers, farm games, livestock exhibit, pony and horse rides and family-friendly food. Entertainment stage with an awesome lineup and great giveaways throughout the day.
