First Friday Maui Is One of the Best Ways to Feel the Local Rhythm

Women laughing together

While most venture to the Valley Isle for rest and relaxation, there are plenty of opportunities to let loose! Maui town parties are the way to go if you are looking for a lively way to start the weekend. The party takes place on the first Friday of the month and moves around to five different towns on Maui, which means that each celebration has a small-town feel. Plus, there’s plenty of local shopping, food, and fun! Learn more below and access our free Vacation Guide to find more things to do before you head to the First Friday Maui party.

Experience First Friday Maui Town Parties Like a Local

First Friday Wailuku

Wailuku First Fridays kick the month off with a bang along Main Street. Wander your way through authentic shops and stalls to find that perfect souvenir or gift. Don’t forget to grab some ono grindz from one of the many vendors, too! Then, check out Art on Market and Wailuku Coffee Company for an excellent selection of artwork and Hawaiian coffee. Bands fill the street with live music and entertainment, and kids and adults enjoy activities ranging from lei-making tutorials to a showcase of classic cars and hot rods.

You’ll find free parking at several locations around Wailuku, and select businesses open up their lots to the public for free. Or, if you’re staying at The Old Wailuku Inn, you can keep your car here and walk over to the party!
