Maui Events September 2021

Aug 18, 20215 comments

The month of September traditionally marks the start of Maui’s slow season. The kids are back in school, the temperatures are cooling down, and the island may be quiet- but there is usually still a ton of fun to be had! September usually boasts the Starry Night Cinema, Breadfruit Day, and a slew of concerts and community events to look forward to. Despite some of these events being canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus situation in the islands, there are still a handful of fun events in September.
