This Saturday the Maui Arts and Cultural Center is holding its second ever Made in Maui County Festival! There will be over 130 different vendors represented, all of which have their headquarters on Maui County (Maui, Molokai and Lanai). A minimum of 51% of their products’ value must have been added in Hawaii. This makes it sound like these are ‘big business’. Actually, a lot of these are mom and pop operations, and so cool!
I went to this event last year. What a great place to do some Christmas shopping! I love buying local when possible, and what an event to showcase locally made products!
The public is invited Saturday, November 7th from 8-4:30pm on the lawn (outdoors) at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Admission is $5/person, children 12 and under get in free. There will be vendor demonstrations, a fashion show, food trucks, prize drawings etc.
If you’re on Maui – check it out! Last year it rained (I picked up an umbrella at the Foodland nearby). Despite the rain, there were over 9400 people in attendance. It was awesome!
