There is something so magical about celebrating fall in Hawaii. Do you want to know what it is? The fact that it’s still warm and perfect weather for going to the beach, hiking your favorite trails or catching a meal on an outdoor patio.That’s right friends, Hawaii is eternal summer, which can be good or bad depending on your attitude. That said, the land of endless summer DOES provide a taste of fall. If you’re like me and craving a little bit of traditional fall activities, you won’t want to miss these fall activities in Hawaii…
Fall Activities in Hawaii
Kauai Marathon + Half Marathon (Kauai) – Held every September, 26.2 miles on the Garden Isle never sounded so good. Register on the event homepage.
Pumpkin Picking at Aloun Farms (Oahu) – This is a great spot for stocking up on pumpkins and produce! Make sure to check the schedule ahead of time, because it has pretty strict hours of operation. We went a few years ago and brought Judy!
Pumpkin Picking at Waimanalo Country Farms (Oahu) – This farm might look familiar from my sunflower field post, but head over for pumpkin picking in the fall!
Pumpkin Picking at Kula Country Farms (Maui) – Take a stroll over to Kula Country Farms to enjoy pumpkins, local food and Upcountry favorites!
Hawaii Holiday Craft + Gift Fair (Oahu) – October 18, 19 + 20th at the Blaisdell Center
Lots of fall and holiday events are held at the Blaisdell Center on Oahu ranging from concerts to craft fairs, Broadway productions and beyond. Check out the full calendar of events here.
Kauai offers many festivals and things to do in the fall months. Check out a full calendar of events here.
Lahaina Halloween Party (Maui) – Every year, the streets of Lahaina are filled with ghosts, goblins and fun! It’s the largest Halloween party in Hawaii. Get all the details for the party here.
Chocolate Tours + Tasting at Kahi Ola Mau Farm (Big Island Hawaii) – Family run and operated, Kahi Ola Mau Farm is the home to Honoka’a Chocolate Co. Be sure to check out their website to book tastings + tours.
Hawaii Food + Wine Festival (all islands) – This fun even occurs every year over the month of October and stretching into the first week of November.
I have yet to find a good apple cider donut in the islands, but you can’t miss a warm malasada from Leonard’s, a coconut turnover from Liliha or a snow puffy from Paala Kai!
Another great (anytime of the year) activity is a trip to the farmer’s market, where you are sure to find fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and, my all time favorite, fresh local goods. Think: homemade jam, fresh jelly, peanut butters and more! A robust list of markets can be found here.
