Maui’s Acclaimed Festival Offers Interactive Seminars, Cooking Demos, and Exquisite Dining from June 6-9, 2024

Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii – The esteemed Kapalua Wine & Food Festival 2024, returning for its 43rd year, is set to enchant guests from June 6-9, 2024, at the Kapalua Resort in Maui. This event stands as a testament to the island’s love for fine wines, gourmet cuisine, and now, with a special addition, soulful music. The festival has recently announced that Maui’s own Jason Arcilla, a singer-songwriter acclaimed for his unique “reggae and blues” sound, will headline the Grand Tasting Gala on Saturday evening​​.

Arcilla, who gained a significant following after his appearance on NBC’s “The Voice” Season 24, blends R&B with reggae and island surf rock, creating a musical experience that resonates with the laid-back, yet vibrant spirit of Maui. Having recently performed at the Maui Songwriters Festival, he and his band are prepared to grace the Grand Tasting Gala with an array of captivating songs​​.

The festival invites attendees to immerse themselves in a weekend of luxury with the Festival Pass, currently offered at a special Leap Year rate of $1,029 until March 31, 2024. This pass grants access to a suite of curated events, including all wine tasting seminars, chef cooking demos, preferred seating, and the much-anticipated Grand Tasting Gala, which will now feature the musical stylings of Jason Arcilla​​.

Kicking off with an exclusive Aloha Winemaker Reception on Thursday, the festival will proceed with interactive wine tasting seminars that delve into high elevation farming and European favorites, each available for $150. Notably, on Saturday, attendees can enjoy “Pigs & Pinot Hawaiian Style,” a unique seminar and luncheon by Celebrity Chef Charlie Palmer for $225​​​​.

The Grand Tasting Gala, priced at $335 with early bird pricing of $295 available until March 31, 2024, is set to be the weekend’s centerpiece. Guests will indulge in premium wines, handcrafted cocktails, and gastronomic creations by Lahaina’s most distinguished chefs, all while being serenaded by Jason Arcilla’s distinctive sound​​.

Concluding the festivities on Sunday, the Champagne & Caviar Special Club seminar offers an opulent start at $150 per ticket, and the afternoon will feature a cooking demonstration and wine tasting luncheon with Chef Maneet Chauhan at $225 per ticket​​.

With its scenic venue, exquisite culinary offerings, esteemed guests, and now the addition of Jason Arcilla’s musical performance, the 43rd Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival promises a celebration that transcends the traditional wine and food event, offering an experience that will captivate all the senses. Tickets are now available for this not-to-be-missed gathering of gourmands and music lovers alike.
