The County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation will conduct a public meeting to conduct a lottery for the scheduling of craft fairs at the Lahaina Civic Center and Kīhei Community Center for the period of July 2017 through November 2017.

The lottery meeting will be held on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 9 a.m. at the Parks Conference Room in the War Memorial Gymnasium Complex.

Anyone interested in obtaining a permit to conduct a craft fair at either the Lahaina Civic Center (Social Hall) or the Kīhei Community Center (Main Hall) must attend this meeting, and register for the lottery.

To register for the lottery, all interested individuals and organizations must complete an application, which includes a copy of the current general excise tax license and a resume showing that the applicant or promoter has had past experience conducting at least one gift and craft fair or similar event, or any other comparable qualifications.
