“Makawao Giving Thanks”
6pm – 9pm
Join us Friday, November 16th, 2018 from 6-9 PM in Historic Makawao Town as Makawao gives thanks featuring Maui’s own amazing Hawaiian guitar virtuoso Uncle Willie K.
Baldwin Avenue will be closed from the top of Makawao Avenue down to Brewer Street beginning 5:15 PM. Guests joining our M3F block party can enjoy free entertainment, food trucks and booths, arts and crafts, the Keiki Zone with magic, interactive activities, arts and crafts, and plenty of great local shopping and restaurants. This is a rain or shine FREE community event.
Uncle Willie K on the M3F main stage 7:15 – 8:45 PM
We are excited to welcome Uncle Willie K to our main stage! Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country, opera—and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment.
Benny Uyetake, Maui based Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning guitarist and composer opens the evening at 6:00 PM on the main stage. Music has always been the nucleus of Benny’s passion which includes his family, friends, education, and occupation.
Kathy Collins, actress, storyteller, comedian and proud Maui girl, will enliven us as Maui’s all-time favorite Emcee extraordinaire!
