Made in Maui County Festival aims to grow islands’ businesses

On November 4 & 5, 2016, Maui County will hold its largest products show, the annual Made in Maui County Festival, at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahului. Now in its third year, the event aims to continue its momentum of showcasing hundreds of Made-in-Maui-County products while helping to grow the islands’ small businesses.

Over 140 product vendors will offer a wide variety of foods, produce, art, crafts, jewelry, fashions, gifts, collectibles and more. Of this total, 38 businesses are new to the event, 16 businesses are from Molokai, and one from Lanai. Additionally, on Saturday, 11 of Maui’s popular food trucks will be featured in the Festival’s Food Court, offering a myriad of island-inspired menu items.

Serious shoppers who want a one-day head start will be allowed to purchase tickets for a special “Shoppers Preview” to be held on Friday, November 4th from 1:30 pm to 6 pm. Attendees will enjoy the Festival’s opening ceremonies at approximately 5 pm in the Yokouchi Pavilion. Light refreshments will be served. Attendees will also receive a free Festival tote bag.
