The Maui County Farm Bureau will hold its Maui AgFest and 4-H Livestock Fair this summer after two years of having to forfeit the popular event due to COVID-19, the organization announced.

Scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 4 at War Memorial Special Events Field, the event aims to give attendees a chance to learn about agriculture, meet farmers and ranchers, and enjoy the Maui’s agricultural history and culture, according to a news release. .

It will feature all of the featured events, including the Maui Legacy Farmers Pancake Breakfast, Grand Taste, Keiki Zone, Maui 4-H Livestock Show and Auction, Grown on Maui Farmers’ Market, Ag Education, and food stalls/food trucks.

Admission to the event is free; parking is $5 per car.

Vendors and sponsors interested in joining AgFest can complete an application online at mauiagfest.org. For the Grown on Maui Farmers’ Market, only produce grown in Maui will be permitted.

For the full schedule of events, visit mauiagfest.org. Online ticket sales for the Maui Legacy Farmers Pancake Breakfast and Grand Taste begin May 1.

Formerly billed as Maui County’s annual agricultural festival, AgFest merged with the Maui 4-H Livestock Association in 2019 and moved to War Memorial Special Events Field to help grow the event. It was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.
