Maui Weekend Events November 17

Aloha friends! This weekend on Maui brings you a special edition of the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival on Saturday night. ProArts Maui is offering a donation-based yoga class Friday morning. Saturday night, enjoy the crooning of local Nara Boone. On Sunday, Eric Gilliom’s “White Hawaiian” takes stage in the afternoon and Improv featuring JD Walsh in the evening. The Maui County American Job Center is hosting a career and resource fair at the Queen Kaahumanu Center.

Not weekend related, but I wanted to put on your radar that a recent rule change has lowered the required down payment for multiunit properties to 5%. This could open doors for new homeowners on Maui. Another quick business resource update is that MEO is offering bridge grants to businesses affected by the wildfires.
