Barktoberfest to feature family fun for everyone

By Staff | Sep 8, 2011

KAANAPALI — Maui Humane Society’s second annual “Barktoberfest” will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa.

This fabulous evening under the stars on the Sheraton’s Ocean Lawn will feature great grinds, tasty beer from Maui Brewing Company and an awesome lineup of live music: Ahumanu, Lisa Owen and the Village Musicians, Gerit Williams, Sebrina Barron, and Maui’s favorite jam band, Haiku Hillbillys.

Maui Humane Society (MHS) will have a keiki activity tent for kids of all ages with games, crafts and other fun activities, and the Sheraton’s staff will cook up gourmet German and island grinds to tantalize the pallet.

MHS adoptable pets will not be in attendance, but this event is all for them. All of the proceeds from “Barktoberfest” will provide safe and nurturing shelter, food, and veterinary care for animals in need, help reunite lost pets with their families and help orphans find loving, forever homes.
