MAKAWAO - An Upcountry tradition that celebrates Mom and all things beautiful, the Seabury Hall Craft Fair will take place on Saturday, May 12, the day before Mother's Day.
This year's fair, the 39th annual, is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Seabury Hall campus just one mile above Makawao.
The event's juried craft show features the work of some of Hawaii's finest artisans and crafters - more than 100 in all - including woodworkers, traditional Hawaiian artists, jewelers, ceramists and weavers. It's a relaxed setting for locating a unique "Made on Maui" gift that Mom will cherish.
Keiki will enjoy the giant water slide, games and bouncy rides at the 39th annual Seabury Hall Craft Fair.
Live music, great food, a cafe with delicious treats, silent and live auctions, rummage sale, giant water slide, plus games and bouncy rides for the kids ensure good fun for all.
"The Seabury Hall Craft Fair has become a tradition for many Maui families - a way to extend Mother's Day into an entire weekend," said Gayle Hart, Seabury Hall's parent coordinator and associate director of development.
"People from all over the island enjoy coming Upcountry to 'ooh' and 'ahh' over the beautiful flowering trees and spend a fun day on the 11-acre campus eating delicious food, enjoying live entertainment and checking out the fun activities and exhibits."
Admission is $5 for adults; children ages 12 and under are admitted free.
Free parking is available. There is also premium parking for $10. Help reduce trash and make this a greener event by bringing your own shopping bag.
All proceeds from the fair support Seabury Hall's financial aid program. More than one-third of all Seabury Hall students receive some form of financial help through this fund. Without it, a Seabury Hall education would not be a reality for some of these students.
The entertainment lineup will include Haiku Hillbillies, Dr. Nat & Rio Ritmo, The Free Radicals Projekt, Wave Train, Visibly Shaken, The Kryptones, Feat, Dani Girl, Deep Cover and the Seabury Hall school band.
