Maui Shows & Nightlife
Luaus are great ways to experience an authentic Hawaiian meal and the learn of the cultural influences upon the islands. With dozens of luaus to choose from throughout the islands, a Maui luau 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.
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.
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 areas 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 it’s impressive ‘Taste’ events, including the ‘Taste of Wailea’, where a number of local and world-renowned chefs come together to display their culinary expertise.

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, funny and make it truly a party. This ought not be missed!
Spectacular food, killer cocktails, a chance to interact with Maui’s top chefs in an intimate, elegant setting—all are seamlessly offered at Maui Chef’s Table at the Maui Tropical Plantation, where nine superlative courses are prepared before your eyes by The Mill House’s executive chef Taylor Ponte and/or his talented crew of culinary experts. Held on select weekend evenings, Maui Chef’s Table sells out quick—and is, undoubtedly, one of the island’s most memorable experiences.
We're open to suggestions too!
