The 2016 Maui Steel Guitar Festival was held on April 15-17, 2016 at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Camp was held in the days immediately preceding the festival. The camp provided an opportunity for participants to learn all about and how to play the Hawaiian Steel Guitar (no experience required!) then enjoy the 3-day festival of Hawaiian Steel Guitar music.
The 2017 Maui Steel Guitar Festival will be held on April 28-30, 2017 at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel, and at the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center during the afternoon of April 30, 2017. The 2017 Hawaiian Steel Guitar Camp will again precede the 2017 festival and will be held on April 26-27, 2017, at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel.
