The Maui Seasons for Peace will celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace with an event concert to be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 16 at Queen Ka’ahumanu Center.

This celebration is held annually by the Maui Seasons for Peace organization to recognize the efforts of those who work to end conflict and promote peace. Featured at this event will be local performing groups who represent the large variety of world cultures that live on Maui.

Some of the groups that will be performing are Uncle George Kahumoku Jr. and friends, the Kamehameha Ukulele band, the Isle of Maui Pipe Band and other local groups. Performances will continue each half hour for the duration of the concert.

This event will feature an “Info Expo.” Members of the public are invited to visit informational tables set up by a number of Maui nonprofit organizations. The public is invited to pick up a “Passport” to be stamped at the nonprofit tables. Accrue six or more stamps and turn it in for door prize drawings. Drawings will be held every 30 minutes and will feature gift cards to local businesses. Winners must be present to claim their prize.

The purpose of Maui Seasons for Peace is to encourage individuals, groups, schools and organizations in the community to support the awareness and expansion of peace in each of us and the world through its activities, interfaith events and collaborative community partnerships.
