Lā ‘Ulu – Booths

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!

The purpose of this event is to provide outreach about the use of ‘ulu to Maui residents and the Native Hawaiian community, by bringing together Hawaiian researchers, farmers, chefs, and food producers to share their work with ‘ulu. We hope that getting the word out about ‘ulu will help increase demand for traditional Hawaiian foods, increase viable crop choices for local farmers, and increase resident interest in preserving other Hawaiian plants like the unique Hawaiian cultivars of kalo, ‘uala, kō, ‘awa, and mai‘a featured at Maui Nui Botanical Gardens. Booths will be hosted by Hawaiian organizations from across the state that are involved in ‘ulu research, promotion, and growing, in addition to Maui cultural and environmental groups.


This project is sponsored by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, working to improve the lives of Native Hawaiians.
