October’s here, and fall is a great time to vacation on Maui. The busy summer tourist season is over, and the crowd’s thinner, making it an enjoyable time of the year. If you’ve already secured a Maui condo rental and are curious about annual events and festivities, not to worry – there’s plenty to do during the fall season on our wonderful island!
The 95th Annual Maui Fair takes place from October 5th through the 8th, and you won’t want to miss all of the great activities, attractions, and entertainment for the entire family. From the fire fried rice challenge and LEGO competitions to the chili contest, hobbies and crafts exhibits, livestock and poultry, and of course, the fabulous and exciting rides – this is an event you won’t want to miss.
October 15th is a busy day, with the Maui Ukulele Festival going on at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahului; and the Boston Marathon qualifier event, the Annual Maui Marathon that takes participants along a 26.2 mile course spanning from Kahului to Ka’anapali.
If you love good food and wine, you won’t want to miss the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival on Maui, from October 20-22, where you’ll experience foods that are locally grown along with the opportunity to see well-known culinary personalities and master chefs! It’s a great time that takes place in the Ka’anapali Beach Resort area.
October’s calendar wouldn’t be complete without Halloween in Lahaina, an event that typically attracts about 25,000 people. Children will enjoy a Halloween costume parade in the late afternoon, while adults enjoy their own costume contest later in the evening, along with live music. The fun lasts until midnight, but those who have children should be warned that the festivities become geared more toward adults as the evening progresses.
