Maui Events by Month
Every year, the Shanghai Circus is eagerly anticipated in Maui. This talented group of acrobats travel to our island annually to showcase their skill and daring for packed audiences. The croup consists of acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, and performers who have mastered incredible balancing acts. The excitement of the show never let's up as one breath-taking act follows another. They don't always pull everything, which makes it even more nerve-racking to watch. A youthful twist is added to traditional chinese circus maneuvers at the Macc.

4th of July Firework Shows
The best fireworks on Maui for the 4th can be found in Lahaina. Find a good spot to enjoy them as they're shot from barges on the water. Wailea sometimes fires off a decent show.
If you light fireworks on the beach, or anywhere, please clean up the shrapnel. The only thing that makes a local more angry than warm Heineken is littering (lack of Kokua.)
