Maui County Agricultural Festival at the Maui Tropical Plantation

The Maui County Agricultural Festival takes place on Saturday, April 2nd at the Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapū.

Stop by and learn what the ag industry and supporters share; but most of all learn ag’s vital role in the economy, environment, and lifestyle of Maui.

Hosted by Maui County Farm Bureau (MCFB) in partnership with the 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.

Families won’t want to miss this year’s “Maui Legacy Pancake Breakfast” from 8 to 9:30 a.m. It includes bingo, a raffle and an opportunity to honor three Maui farmers who have contributed greatly to our agricultural industry. They are Pardee Erdman, Buddy Nobriga and Hanako Hashimoto.

Other big highlights this year includes farm games, livestock exhibits, pony and horse rides and family-friendly food by Chef/Owner Chris Schobel of Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse BBQ, and much more!

The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission is $5 for adults; the event is free for kupuna ages 65 and older, along with keiki under 18).  Free parking and shuttle transfers are available from Maui Tropical Plantation’s Mā’alae’a-side parking lot to Ag Fest’s main entrance.
