About Makawao Friday Town Parties:
Following in the footsteps of Wailuku’s successful “First Friday,” Maui County has partnered up with Makawao Town coordinators as well for its new “Maui Fridays” inititiative. The Makawao Friday Town Party schedule started with an inaugural event in the Makawao Town Center on November 18, 2011 with monthly themed events scheduled for the third Friday of each month going forward.

If it’s the third Friday of the month, there’s a party in Makawao.

This paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town may be small, but it’s unmistakably big on charm. Makawao has successfully retained its peaceful, balanced nature and picturesque setting, nestled against a sea of rolling green.

The town is a gathering place for both old timers and new comers, embracing an older time and slower pace. Still it has grown into a lively community with talented, locally grown entrepreneurs.

Come join us on the third Friday of every month to celebrate Upcountry Maui, the Makawao way.
