It kind of conveys the hazy mellowness of summer on Maui.

This is a very informal list of events and opportunities that may be updated as I get to it. Often they are events that I might want to go to, or events that I think are worth sharing, or I don't want to plan something on a day there is a major event. There is some bias towards gardening, upcountry activities, low-cost or free events. Other good places to get local info on events: Meet Up, Flyers Up, Calendar Maui, Maui Time, A Maui Blog, EveryDay Maui. The Thursday Maui News has a weekend event calendar in their newspaper.
Throughout June and July: Japanese Bon Dances or obon festivals - Calendar Maui and Maui Time often have good listings. They take place all over the island at different Japanese missions/temples. Oh, I just found a good obon schedule on EveryDay Maui.
