The second annual Kēōkea Ho‘olaule‘a is seeking vendors for a limited number of booths for its Sept. 5 event.

The ho‘olaule‘a is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kēōkea Marketplace, the event host, the nonprofit Keokea Homestead Farm Lots Association, announced.

Keokea Ho‘olaule‘a vendor booths are available for a $50 fee on a first-paid, first-served basis.

Admission is $1 to the fundraiser at mile marker 17, at the intersection of Kula Highway at Ka‘amana Street, .2 miles past Grandma’s Coffee House.


The Central Maui-based hālau Na Hanona Kulike ‘O Pi‘ilani is among the headliners at the event. Co-kumu hula Sissy Lake-Farm and Kapono‘ai Molitau guide the 12-year-old hālau. They are the children of the late Maui-born chant master, Kumu Hula John Keola Lake. Lake-Farm serves as executive director of the Maui Historical Society/Bailey House Museum. Molitau is owner/proprietor of the Native Intelligence shop in Wailuku and serves as kahuna nui, or high priest, of Pu‘ukohola Heiau at Kawaihae on Hawai‘i Island.


For event information and vendor applications, contact Karen Park via email or call (808) 870-3220.
