Seabury Hall Craft Fair Transcends Time
Every year when the Upcountry Seabury Hall Craft Fair rolls around, I know Mother’s Day is not far away because the craft fair will always fall on the Saturday before the Sunday of Mother’s Day. It also makes me quite nostalgic and I flashback to my years as a student at Seabury Hall and volunteering as a student helper.
The craft fair is the perfect place to pick up a gift for mom and I am certainly no stranger to picking out a last minute gift among all of the local vendors. It hasn’t let me down yet!
Steeped in 4 decades of tradition, the craft fair attracts people from all over the island and possibly beyond. 100% of the proceeds from the fair are used to support Seabury Hall’s financial aid program.
The craft fair serves a great purpose and offers students the opportunity to attend an outstanding college preparatory school. About 1/3 of the student body receives some sort of funding from the craft fair.
45th Annual Seabury Hall Craft Fair
Held on campus grounds, this year’s 45th Annual Seabury Hall Craft Fair will take place on Saturday, May 12th from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Just as a word of caution, every year there is always a light drizzle which actually works in the favor of the craft fair because fair goers are treated to the rainbows that follow May showers.
Admission for adults is $5 and children 12 and under are free. There is plenty of free parking on the ranch land just across from campus, while there is also parking on campus for a certain premium.
Set among the rolling hills of Olinda and deep in paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) country, the Maui community gathers to enjoy the Seabury Hall craft fair where goers peruse the 100+ Maui vendors.
These local businesses showcase their offerings and works including, jewelry, ceramics, weaving, clothing, painting, woodworking and traditional Hawaiian art. For the most part, all of the vendors are close to 100% “Made in Hawaii.”
Aside from the local vendors, this family inclusive event includes:
- Live entertainment by students
- Restaurant Row: a collection of Maui renowned chefs offering up some of their delectable bites
- Stand out booths include: Serpico’s pizza, Sansei sushi, Flatbread pizza, and Monkey Pod Kitchen
- Bake Sale: home-baked goods prepared by Seabury Hall’s `ohana at La Patisserie
- Silent auction items including faraway vacations and local one-of-a-kind experiences
- Keiki fun zone: carnival style games, pony rides and a giant waterslide
- Maui’s biggest rummage sale
- Plant flower arrangements and lei sale
Former Headmaster, Joe Schmidt, now retired, states:
“The Seabury Hall Craft Fair has become a tradition for many Maui families, and is a great reason to visit Upcountry in spring.
The jacaranda trees are in full bloom, and the weather is still cool and inviting. Bring the whole family and spend the day on the 11-acre campus, eating delicious food, enjoying live entertainment and joining in the fun activities and exhibits.”
