KULA – A call for vendors has gone out for a limited number of booths at the second annual Keokea Ho’olaule’a. The Upcountry event will unfold from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 5 at the Keokea Marketplace.

Admission is $1 to the fundraiser.

The Central Maui-based halau Na Hanona Kulike ‘O Pi’ilani is among the headliners of daylong entertainment at the event, the host nonprofit Keokea Homestead Farm Lots Association announced.

Co-Kumu Hula Sissy Lake-Farm and Kapono’ai Molitau guide the 12-year-old halau. They are the daughter and son, respectively, of the late Maui-born chant master, Kumu Hula John Keola Lake.

Lake-Farm serves as executive director of the Maui Historical Society/Bailey House Museum. Molitau is owner/proprietor of the Native Intelligence shop in Wailuku and serves as kahuna nui, or high priest, of Pu’ukohola Heiau at Kawaihae on Hawai’i Island.

Keokea Ho’olaule’a vendor booths are available for a $50 fee on a first-paid, first-served basis. For event information and vendor applications, contact Karen Park at keokeamarketplace@gmail.com or 870-3220.
