2023 T-Shirt Design
This year's t-shirt design features the iris, an emblem often associated with the month of May and Kodomo no Hi. It is also a flower of purity and clarity, said to ward off evil spirits and heal negative energies, which seemed fitting for this edition of Maui Matsuri as it marks a reemergence in full glory.
You can purchase this year's t-shirt on May 20 and May 27 at the t-shirt table for $20, while supplies last
