Lā ‘Ulu – Breadfruit Day

Last September our popular food and cultural festival, Lā ‘Ulu - Breadfruit Day, was a no-go because of the pandemic. This year, it is back with a few changes for community safety, with the support of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs ‘Ahahui Grant Program. The 4th annual Lā ‘Ulu will include ‘ulu culinary, cultural and horticultural demonstrations, ‘ulu trees for sale, and all kinds of foods using ‘ulu as an ingredient. The event will be spread out over one week, with the main event happening September 4 and 5, 2021. Do you love ‘ulu or this event? We are seeking Maui residents to join the 2021 Lā ‘Ulu Event Planning Committee, which will meet monthly. Committee kuleana will include reaching out to event participants and helping with logistics such as volunteer coordination and COVID safety.

For more information on the event or to participate please call 808-249-2798
