10/12/2021: If a few of these pages look a little wonky, I'm sorry!  I've just rebuilt the site and have over 400 pages left to go through for final fixes.

Annual Events On Maui By Month

The following Maui events are generally held at about the same times each year.  For more information and exact dates for this year, call the numbers below or check the given websites for each event.

See photos below Maui Calendar list.

Keep in mind that many of these events have changed since COVID-19 hit the world.  Some are gone forever, but we don’t know yet.  Some have stopped for a year or 2 and will be back.  Some are running right now!
