Maui Shows & Nightlife
Luaus are great ways to experience an authentic Hawaiian meal and to learn about the cultural influences on the islands. With dozens of luaus to choose from throughout the islands, one of the Maui luau shows will be more traditional and offer you what you’re specifically looking for. Some luaus are romantic while others are better for the kids. Whether you’re going as a newlywed, or as a family, there’s something for you.
Maui Dinner Cruises
Dinner Cruises are always a favorite for those who live on the island as well as visitors. For the price of a nice meal on land, you can experience a Maui sunset over the water while enjoying a delicious meal and sipping refreshing cocktails. In season, you can even watch whales breaching by your boat. We highly recommend a Maui sunset cruise with dinner, and if Lahaina, check out this dinner cruise.
Maui Film Festival
Serving as the zenith of Maui events, the Maui Film Festival is one of the Valley Isle’s most acclaimed and recognized annual functions. The majority of the festival is held in Wailea, either on the oceanfront at one of the area’s stunning resorts or up in the rolling hills of the Wailea Golf Club. Formed to honor and celebrate the greatest talents in film, the Maui Film Festival hosts five days and nights of film premieres, screenings, screenwriter panels, award ceremonies, and more. The festival is also known for its impressive ‘Taste’ events, including the ‘Taste of Wailea’, where a number of local and world-renowned chefs come together to display their culinary expertise.

Island Art Party
We had thoughts on what it would be like to attend the Island Art Party: drinks, painting, fun. We had no idea just how much fun we’d have (and how well our paintings would come out!) And since, we’ve been back many times. The owners are friendly, helpful, and funny and truly make it a party. This ought not to be missed!
