97th annual Maui Fair returns in October!
The Maui Fair, the island’s largest and longest running event, is returning to nearby Wailuku for a 97th big year providing fun, food, friends and family Oct. 3-6. The Fair kicks off with its traditional parade on Friday, Oct. 3, at 4:30 p.m. Featuring food, rides, exhibits, entertainment and contests (including Baby of the Year!), the Maui Fair is fun for the entire family. Be sure to attend if your visit to Kahana Villa, a spacious condo-style resort on Maui’s gorgeous West Coast, coincides with this popular event.

The Maui Fair kicks off a great month of fun events on Maui, including:
The Annual Maui Marathon, a Boston Marathon qualifier event, follows a 26.2-mile course across the island from Kahului to Kaanapali and is considered one of the 10 most scenic marathons in the U.S. If you are on Maui that day and aren’t running in the marathon, you can still join in the fun by cheering on the participants along the route.
This statewide event takes place over three weeks on multiple islands, showcasing Hawaii’s locally grown foods and featuring a roster of internationally known master chefs and culinary personalities. Don’t miss the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival events taking place on Maui each year in the Kaanapali Beach Resort area!
The world’s premier off-road triathlon combines a 1.5 kilometer (1 mile) rough water swim, a 32-kilometer (20 mile) mountain bike race climbing 3,500 feet up the West Maui Mountains and a 10.5-kilometer (6.5 mile) trail run. Whew! This event draws around 800 athletes from 28 countries including professionals and amateurs.
Dubbed the Mardi Gras of the Pacific, the annual Halloween celebration in Lahaina draws around 25,000 people each year! The celebration starts in late afternoon with a kid-friendly activity—the Keiki (“children”) Halloween Costume Parade—which is completely adorable. The festivities continue until midnight with live music, an adult costume contest (with incredibly elaborate costumes!) and lots more fun. (The later the hour, the more adult-oriented the crowd and the costumes become, so be forewarned if you are traveling with children.)
