See You Next Year!
Mahalo to the 49,000 Festival-goers!
Mahalo for making the 29th annual Made in Hawaiʻi Festival, presented by the Hawaiʻi Food Industry Association, an unparalleled success!
The very heart of Hawaiʻi is anchored in our unwavering support for one another. We’re more than just neighbors or friends; we are ‘Ohana. Throughout the years, our small businesses have thrived due to this shared bond, and the Made in Hawaiʻi Festival is a radiant celebration of this connection.
Witnessing so many of our remarkable local entrepreneurs committing to donate a portion of their proceeds to aid the Maui community devastated by the Lahaina fires was deeply moving. The Made in Hawaiʻi Festival will also be donating $58,192.87 to the Maui Strong fund.
By being part of this special event, you’ve helped us maximize the support we can offer to those in need on Maui.
This year, the Festival featured over 450 vendor booths and over 49,000 attendees. For all of our vendors, guests, and the entire Made in Hawaiʻi Festival community our commitment to authenticity remains unwavering. All our vendors offered genuinely made in Hawaiʻi products, creating a celebration of all things local – from food to fashion, décor, jewelry, and beyond.
We extend our deepest gratitude to our sponsors: Mahi Pono, Central Pacific Bank, Hawaiian Airlines, and HTDC. Made in Hawaiʻi Festival would not be possible without their invaluable contributions.
Your presence, enthusiasm, and patronage make the Made in Hawaiʻi Festival a success. Your understanding of the value of truly local products enables our Made in Hawaiʻi vendors businesses to thrive.
We look forward to gathering once again next year. Until then, remember – Buy Hawaiʻi. For Hawaiʻi.

Mahalo to the Made in Hawaii Festival organizers for creating an event that truly showcases the creative talents and exquisite craftsmanship that is unique to our islands and the aloha spirit.
