We are back home in the Midwest now, and somebody else is enjoying our condos in Maui. There is still a lot happening in Maui, so I thought I would post a few items so that you can see the variety of special events that there are to do in addition to the year-round and seasonal activities.
Zenshin Daiko’s 17th annual taiko festival is a wonderful presentation of Japanese percussion instruments that can give you an appreciation of music from another culture.
The Kapalua Wine and Food Festival (June 9-12) is a great opportunity to taste the cooking of award-winning chefs in a beautiful setting.
The Maui Triathlon (June 12) is not as well known as its cousin on the Big Island, the Iron Man Triathlon, but these competitors still undergo a grueling test of endurance.
Mele Mei Slack Key Guitar Festival (June 26) - you will instantly recognize slack key guitar music as traditional Hawaiian music. This free outdoor concert series will feature some of Hawai‘i’s best slack key guitar players in an afternoon of beautiful Hawaiian music. The event also features an array of crafts and food booths to explore.
My wife and I are retired, and we visit Maui three times every year. In May and October, we stay in our Treetop condo, and in the winter we stay in our Oceanfront condo. We fell in love with Maui 25 years ago, and have been coming back ever since.
