12th Annual Mango Festival Is Postponed

Aloha Dear Friends Of The Mango Festival,
Due to many factors beyond our control, including the fact that Covid-19 restrictions have forced us to move our 12th Annual Mango Festival from Mid-June to late August.
As the purpose of this Free Community event is to offer a safe and inspirational experience for all to enjoy Island Mangos.
Currently, there are very few Mangos available during this time of late Summer.
Therefore, our 2020 12th Annual Mango Festival will be postponed to 2021…
Blessings in these times of change…
