Wailea Events

Each year, Wailea hosts a number of events that attract visitors from around the globe, including the Maui Film Festival, Taste of Wailea, Wailea Food & Wine Festival, and Wailea Restaurant Week.

Maui Film Festival

With several culinary soirees, an extraordinary film line up, and a number of impressive venues, the Maui Film Festival is the crown jewel of Wailea events. Held annually in June, the Maui Film Festival celebrates the art of film and honors some of the best talents in cinema today. Over the course of five days, festival-goers can enjoy some of the most illustrious events of the year on Maui, including the Celestial Cinema, held under the stars on the slopes of the Wailea Golf Club, and the Taste of Wailea event, where some of Maui’s top chefs come together to showcase their work. Lovers of film will also enjoy screenwriters panels, award ceremonies, and a handful of premieres and screenings.

Wailea History & Legend

Like most areas of Maui, Wailea has its own share of Hawaiian history. Lea, the goddess who watched over canoe builders, was said to have transformed into a forest bird called 'elapaio and fly down from Haleakala along the shores of South Maui. This area later became known as Wailea, or the "waters of Lea".

Maui Art Gallery

Fifteen minutes away from Wailea, you’ll find the Maui Art Gallery in ever-sunny Kihei. This bright, inviting venue features striking pieces by the founder of the gallery, Michael John Peters—a self-taught artist who works with everything from bubble wrap to surf combs to create masterful paintings. One of the biggest pleasures of all? You can often catch Peters in the middle of a painting at the front of the gallery, where he uses a variety of materials to make incredible creations.
