The 91st Maui Fair, planned to run from October 3-6, 2013, is currently seeking sponsors for the event.

With an attendance approaching 100,000, administrators note that the Maui Fair is the primary source of funding for many of Maui’s nonprofit and community organizations.

“It relies entirely on corporate or local business sponsorships, local donations, and volunteers for support,” said Fair organizers in a press release.

“One of the most valuable benefits of sponsorship is the significant amount of publicity you receive, exposing you and your business as a true community supporter,” said fair officials in the announcement.

The Fair opens with the traditional parade, which is also Maui’s largest, on Thursday, October 3, and will continue with rides, food, entertainment and more through Sunday evening, October 6, 2013.
