The Haiku Ho`olaule`a & Flower Festival is one of the biggest events of the year. For twenty four consecutive years volunteers have got together to create this fun-filled event attracting over 7,000 attendees to raise money for extra curriculum activities such as art, music, science, and sport at Haiku School and money for the Haiku Boys & Girls Club and The Haiku Community Association.
The festivities will be held primarily at the Haiku School Elementary grounds and the gates will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 4:00 p.m. The event is FREE and there is plenty of parking.
Everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and join the Upcountry community enjoy fabulous live entertainment including Eric Gilliom and Vince Esquire, Yum Yum Beast, Nara Boone, King K HS Jazz band and many more all while eating culinary delights. One of the largest silent auctions on Maui can be found in the school’s cafeteria, while the growers market and crafters fair is not to be missed. There will be plenty of opportunities to get creative with floral design, lei making and pie making contests, and the chance to submerge yourself in culture at the Haiku Historical Display.
The Keiki Zone is always a great hit with the children. This year it will include an interactive zone featuring the book mobile and digital bus, games, pony rides, face painting, bull riding and the very popular return of the Aqua Balls!
The Haiku Ho`olaule`a & Flower Festival is about celebrating family and community. The event loves to encourage our whole island community to get involved. If you have little ones, or even if you don’t, the Haiku Ho`olaule`a & Flower Festival is a highlight event of the calendar year.
