By Maui Now Staff
Organizers of the inaugural Maui County Kōkua Fair announced the event’s lineup of headline entertainment today.
The event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19, will include performances by the Old Lahaina Lūʻau, Maui Taiko, Elvis impersonator Darren Lee of Burn’n Love, and Zumba by Rayo McPhee.
In addition to entertainment, organizers say, “the event will highlight what truly makes Maui the best community in the world by creating awareness about all of the many services and resources available on Maui.”
The event will feature dozens of non-profit booths, food trucks, local entertainment, door prizes, a historical walking tour of Wailuku Town and a geocaching event that uses GPS navigation to find hidden treasures.
Sponsored by the County of Maui, and coordinated by community leaders who have been recognized by The Maui News as “People Who Made A Difference,” the event’s mission is to foster a platform that makes services offered by community groups more accessible to both residents and visitors alike.
At the event, community groups can educate the public about their services, increase volunteer support, pursue donor participation, and offer employment options to fair-goers.
