Maui Hawaii

Note: Links to other posts at end.

You’ll find art galleries across Maui, but there also are several free artsy events.

Maui town parties: Several Maui towns host “town parties” or street festival once a month on Fridays with free activities, such as live music, art shows and face painting. They usually take place at night, but sometimes have daytime activities, too. Wailuku offers activities on the first Friday of each month, Lahaina on the second Friday, Kihei on the fourth Friday and Lana’i on the fifth Friday.

Friday Art Night in Lahaina: Tour Lahaina’s dozen art galleries, meet artists, sip wine and nibble on pupus (snacks) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Friday night. Grab a free Art Map at the Lahaina Visitor Center before 5 p.m.

Lahaina Arts Society’s Art Festivals: Check out local artists at this popular art fair held every weekend from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lahaina Cannery Mall (in front of Starbucks). The art show previously was called Art in the Park and held at Lahaina’s Banyan Tree Park.
