Canceled Spring Events in Maui, Hawaii
15th Annual Reggae in the Valley – Postponed, date to be announced.
As an island event that is looked forward to each year, Reggae in the Valley brings prominent artists in the genre all onto one stage! Producers of this event have been closely monitoring the coronavirus and currently remain hopeful that this event will be rescheduled for early Summer 2020. If you are planning on attending this event this year, please keep an eye on the event page!
Maui Banyan Tree Birthday – To be determined
Known as one of the most famous landmarks in Lahaina, the Banyan Tree was planted in 1873 by the local Sheriff to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first missionaries. At the time, the tree was brought to the island from India and was just a mere 8 feet tall when it was planted. Now, this inspiring piece of history and nature has expanded to a dozen main trunks and crosses over two-thirds of an acre. This event occurs every year during the third weekend in April, so we hope to see you there next year!
Annual Maui Matsuri Festival – Cancelled
What was originally a simple Japanese festival on Wailuku’s Market Street, the Maui Matsuri transforms the UH Maui College campus into an event for all ages to enjoy. If you were hoping to enjoy the food stalls, craft vendors, entertainment, and activities, this annual game will most likely be making a reappearance in 2021!
Diana Ross A Mother’s Day Celebration – Cancelled
With a remarkable career as a recording artist and entertainer, Diana Ross is an international treasure. Scheduled to perform for the broader Maui community on May 10th, the MACC has taken the precaution to cancel this Hawaii concert. Unfortunately, it does not look like this event will be rescheduled but if you did purchase a ticket, it should be refunded via the box office.
Maui Steel Guitar Festival – Postponed to October 16, 2020
Bringing together some of the world’s top musicians, the Maui Steel Guitar Festival hosts stage performances and workshops for the public to freely enjoy! This annual event is made possible with the support of the Hawaii Institute for Musical Enrichment and Learning Experiences (HIMELE) in association with the Ke Kula Mele Hawaii School of Hawaiian Music, The Shops at Wailea, and the Queen Kaahumanu Center.
