Kahului, Maui, HI – July 28, 2016 – Queen Ka’ahumanu Center has rescheduled the Plantation Festival date to Saturday, August 20, 2016 from 9:30am – 2:30pm.
“Due to Tropical Storm Darby, and the consideration of the safety of all our guests, the Plantation Festival was postponed”, says Toni Rojas, Marketing Director. “We look forward to welcoming the entire County of Maui community for a fun family event with lots of sunshine”, says Rojas.
The event will consist of cultural and plantation community booths that will include educational elements and an ethnic menu. Ongoing cultural entertainment includes a festival fashion show featuring traditional and contemporary cultural designs with prizes for the best cultural attire. A plantation history walk will display historical facts and photos, and for the keiki, an art contest with prizes and interactive plantation games are scheduled. Plantation photography will be displayed and select pieces on sale, of which a portion of proceeds will benefit the Plantation Festival.
Guests will also have the opportunity to participate to win great prizes with the Plantation Passport, a guide through the many cultural booths. Passports must be stamped by each cultural organization in order to be eligible for Queen Ka’ahumanu Center discount coupons and an opportunity to win a multitude of prizes, including the $800 Hawaiian Airlines gift card grand prize.
A Hui Hou Fund Steering Committee will be selling “Honor our Past. Grow our Future” merchandise in support of displaced HC&S plantation workers.
