Maui Friday Town Parties

Wailuku First Friday
Friday, March 6 • 6pm–9pm

If it’s the first Friday of the month, there’s a party in Wailuku. First Friday festivities have filled Market Street since 2008. The street may be closed to traffic, but it’s regularly packed with music, magicians, food, art, jewelry and fashion from 6:00pm until 9:00pm

With activities for the keiki (children) and multiple entertainment stages, it’s no wonder thousands regularly attend each Wailuku gathering. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Wailuku is the only town party with a beer garden. The success of the Wailuku First Friday was the catalyst for the current Maui Friday Town Parties initiative.

In addition to its beautiful locale and landmark buildings, the town holds deep historical significance. Wailuku was the birthplace of the island’s sugar industry, once home to Maui’s most famous Hawaiian rulers, and the site of Kamehameha’s victory at Iao Valley. Today, the Maui County capital has evolved into an important government and business district with unique stores, boutiques and eclectic dining. Follow Maui Town Parties at
