Maui Events June 2018

Maui calendar

Summer is less than a month away, and we’re ready for it here on The Valley Isle! Not that summer isn’t practically year round on Maui, but beers in the daytime do tend to sound more acceptable when summer actually has the right label.

Also, if you’d like to send some support for the Kilauea volcano disaster relief efforts on the Big Island, please consider donating to our Hawaii ohana here or here. Any help is appreciated!

For more information or to see the best weekly, monthly and yearly celebrations, check out our calendar of Upcoming Maui Events.
