If a Maui destination wedding sounds like a dream come true for you and your intended, you might be thinking about setting a date and working on your wedding plans. If you also intend to enjoy your honeymoon in Maui, you might want to plan the event during one the following island festivals or events.
Music lovers will enjoy annual events such as the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival, which occurs each year near the end of June. The MayJah RayJah Music Festival is an ideal option for anyone who loves reggae music, and this event occurs each year around the end of July. The Lahaina Restoration Foundation also hosts a free concert each month at the Baldwin Home Museum featuring Hawaiian musicians.
If you and your beloved are foodies, there are some interesting choices to consider. The Kapalua Wine and Food Festival is an annual event that takes place in June and includes plenty of wine tastings, and a variety of local restaurants also provide samples of their cuisine. It might not seem overly romantic, but the Maui Onion Festival, which happens in May, offers all sorts of activities and has been a popular yearly event since 1990.
Lahaina Plantation Days is an annual two-day festival that celebrates the island's history of sugar and pineapple growing. The event, which takes place in mid-October, includes food booths, historical exhibits, a farmers market, coffee sampling and a beer and wine garden, as well as live music from local musicians.
The Maui Film Festival occurs every year in early June, and while it might not rival Cannes or Sundance, it's still a lot of fun for film buffs. A variety of independent films and documentaries are screened, there are panels that you can attend, and the five-day event also includes live music events and plenty of great local food is available. Some of the movies are even shown on huge screens right on the beach.
