Yes, and even more people show up to shop for gifts, food, clothing and more. Get your head start, look for these businesses at the festival:

Big Island Bees

Whendi and Garnett of Big Island Bees craft natural, raw honey, and they do it extraordinarily well. They will be selling (and sampling!) their delicious Hawaiian honey at the Made In Hawaii Festival. The best part? Their booth is right next to the main entrance, your tastebuds are in for a treat as soon as you arrive! Check out Big Island Bees at Booth 303. You can also shop online at

Maui Soap Company

Alana and Conor are the owners of Maui Soap Company, producing a high-quality line of natural soaps, lotions, lip balms and more. For the quality and amount of products they produce, it’s amazing that Alana and Conor are the only two employees, operating Maui Soap Co. from their home in Haiku.
