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.
