The Upcountry Fair will be held on June 9 and 10, 2012 at the Oskie Rice Arena in Makawao. This year we are honoring Maui’s old time paniolo.

The Fair promotes the Maui 4-H Livestock Association’s annual animal show and sale in which Maui’s youth present the farm animals they have raised for the year and offer them for sale at an auction. The education, knowledge and understanding that our 4-H kids are learning has groomed them well for their role in leadership of the 4-H Youth Board. Whole Foods Market sponsors the Agricultural Tent where you can shop for Maui County Farm Bureau farm-fresh produce and plants. The Made-in-Hawaii Tent features all crafts and packaged foods, as well as Maui style food such as BBQ chicken, beef and pork plates, lumpia, chow fun, salads, Indian dishes and desserts.

For more information, call Brenda Kuala‘au at 808- 870-9031 or email ucf@ The Upcountry Fair’s mission is to protect, promote and perpetuate agriculture, farming and ranching on the island of Maui.
