There are many events happening on Maui this Easter weekend. Maui residents and visitors have a lot to choose from. I would like to recommend two that I think you would enjoy the most. These two events will enable you to experience Malama Maui at its best: the CELEBRATION OF ARTS happening in Kapalua and the AG FESTIVAL at Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapu.
