Sunflower Farm Music Fest
April 22 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$100
Pacific Biodiesel founders, Bob and Kelly King, announced today they will partner for a second consecutive year with Mana‘o Radio 91.7FM KMNO to present a benefit farm tour and festival event, this time supporting the critical issue of food security in Hawaii. The “Sunflower Farm Music Fest” will take place in a blooming field of sunflowers at the Kings’ family farm in Maui’s Central Valley on Earth Day – Saturday, April 22, 2023 – from 9AM to 5PM.
Funds raised will support the non-profit Hawaii Good Food Alliance for its Hawaii Food Hub Hui, a collaboration of 14 food hubs across five Hawaiian islands that provides vital support to small- and medium- sized local farms by working to aggregate, store, process and distribute locally grown, culturally preferred foods to Hawaii’s residents. The event will also raise funds for non-profit Mana‘o Radio, Maui’s only independent, commercial- free, all-volunteer radio station.
Tickets, which go on sale today, are $100 each and must be purchased online in advance at www.Biodiesel.com or www.
Maui musicians scheduled to perform at this event include George Kahumoku Jr, Drew Martin, Benny Uyetake, Sting Kong, Soul Kitchen, Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band, The Lonely Hearts – Beatles and Beyond, and Marty Dread with Gretchen Rhodes & The House Shakers. Following a blessing by Lei‘ohu Ryder, Mana‘o Radio DJs will emcee the event.

During this event, attendees will be able to view the sunflowers, take part in farm tours, and visit the on-site Farm Stand to purchase products manufactured from local sustainable farming operations, including Maiden Hawaii Naturals culinary oils and Kuleana® cosmetic (including CBD) products. Booths will be hosted by participating non-profits to share information about their organizations. Food partners, including Moku Roots and ʻĀina Tacos, will sell menu items prepared with Maiden Hawaii Naturals culinary oils and other local ingredients; unique food experiences during the event will showcase the food hub model.
