Lā ‘Ulu 2021 (Breadfruit Day!)
Lā 'Ulu Breadfruit Day has been postponed.
COVID-19 cases, especially the Delta variant, are currently at their highest numbers on Maui and in our state since the beginning of the pandemic. Maui is also the least vaccinated county, at 55%. The County of Maui has decided that, for public safety, the 2021 Lā 'Ulu Breadfruit Day event scheduled for September 4 must be limited to 100-150 participants. For comparison, the 2019 Lā 'Ulu event had an attendance of 2,000. Because of this, we have decided to postpone all scheduled 2021 Lā 'Ulu activities, both virtual and in-person. If you can, please get vaccinated! Check back here for the new date.
