From food festivals to film festivals, there’s a lot to do on Maui! Take a look below and you’ll see some of our favorites. But you won’t need to go far — or even put on shoes — to enjoy local entertainment. We host special performances right here at Hale Pau Hana.

“This is the only place our adult children want to stay in Hawaii. We love it and now they love it too. Thank you for making our family holiday, awesome!”
