MAUI CALENDAR EVENTS 2014 BIG ACTIVITY

Maui has outstanding community events throughout the year – from golf tournaments that are fun to watch or fundraisers that are fun to eat (at).  If you are thinking of traveling to Maui in 2014, here are some events that you might want to consider planning a trip around.  (ok, it might be too late to make it here for the golf tournament, but I bet it will happen around the same time in 2015 as well…) And if you live here, some of these events are the ones you’ll want to start saving your pennies for…

UPDATE APRIL 29  – I’ve gone ahead and DELETED the events that have already taken place – and if you are planning to come in 2015, I’m already starting to put together that calendar soon!

Please note: If you know of other can’t-miss events, please add a comment below with a website for consideration.  Some events happening in the latter part of the year may not have confirmed dates yet.  Will keep this up to date as possible.  All events subject to change/cancellation.

Comments on: "Maui’s Big Events for 2014" (10)

  1. great list! How about the Maui Ag Fair (and their Grand Taste Education) April 5th, and then of course the Makawao Rodeo on 4th of July (though I can’t find any info on that currently)

  2. This listing is very helpful. Thank you for putting this together. And it will probably grow as new events pop up, yes? Great resource!

    • Yes! I welcome any suggestions for special events on Maui – should be just once a year events (not repeating events like Friday Town Parties- which are great but just a different post) – events that people might even plan trips to Maui around!

  3. Please consider adding the Maui 5K. The website is at http://www.maui5k.org. It is an event to help raise funds for our Maui County school’s physical fitness and athletic programs.

  4. Thanks for creating this fun list 🙂 jennifer
