Pacific Biodiesel to host 3rd Annual Sunflower Farm Music Festival May 4

Updated: Jun 5

Pacific Biodiesel announced during National Agriculture Week in March that it is hosting the 3rd Annual Sunflower Farm Music Festival May 4.


“Join us in a field of blooming sunflowers from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at this iconic Maui event that will once again be hosted at the family farm of Pacific Biodiesel founders Bob and Kelly King in Maui’s Central Valley,” the biodiesel production company stated.


Produced by Licorice Pizza Records owner Kerry Brown, this year’s event will benefit Maui-based nonprofits focused on supporting local farming and helping grow Maui’s food security: Maui HubCommon Ground Collective and Grow Some Good.

“We met Kerry when he jumped in to help with last year’s festival and are so grateful for his offer to produce this year’s event,” said Pacific Biodiesel Co-Founder Kelly King. “While everyone at Pacific Biodiesel works hard to address our state’s food and fuel sustainability issues—and we are thrilled to help the nonprofits on Maui who do the same—music is a love but not our forte! Bob and I are elated to partner with a professional music-festival producer, and such a caring and nice person who has become a close friend and stellar contributor to our community.”


In addition to enjoying great music from a star-studded lineup, attendees will be able to view and photograph the sunflowers, take part in farm tours, visit the on-site farmers market, and enjoy unique food experiences.


General-admission tickets for this benefit event are $100 each.

Founded in 1995, Pacific Biodiesel is the nation’s longest-operating and most-experienced biodiesel producer, and the only commercial producer of liquid biofuels in the state.


A Maui-based company with nearly 100 employees statewide, Pacific Biodiesel established the first retail biodiesel pump in America and for nearly three decades it has been an innovative leader in the renewable energy industry.


With a nameplate production capacity of 5.5 million gallons annually, its refinery on Hawaii Island utilizes advanced technology to produce premium distilled biodiesel.


The company has always focused on recycling with a zero-waste philosophy that incorporates development of value-added coproducts.


Today, Pacific Biodiesel’s collaborative, community-based “agriculture and energy” production model demonstrates a circular-economy approach to fighting climate change and helps Hawaii achieve a clean, sustainable energy future.
