The parade takes place at 4:30 p.m. starting at UH Maui College along Kaʻahumanu Avenue and ending at the War Memorial Stadium on Kanaloa Avenue. The Fairground will open 5 p.m.


Maui police say west-bound traffic on Kaʻahumanu Avenue will be closed at the intersections with Wākea Avenue/UHMC, Wahinepio/Papa Avenue and Kanaloa Avenue/Mahalani Street starting at 3:30 p.m. until the end of the parade. East-bound traffic will remain open during the parade. Motorists are asked to plan accordingly.

The event kicks off four days of festivities, including rides, food and entertainment through Sunday night.


The fair runs from Oct. 4 through Oct. 7, 2018. To end the fair with a bang, Willie K closes out the fair weekend on Sunday, Oct. 7, taking the stage at 9:30 p.m.
