It’s summertime and you’ve spent the entire past year saving, planning and dreaming of your Hawaii vacation. The time has finally arrived for you to settle into your vacation rental in Maui, dip your toes in the sand, and relax. But there’s still one step left before you can let your mind rest at ease, and that’s making a list of worthwhile activities for your visit. Don’t worry, we’ve done the hard work for you. Here’s a list of the best activities on Maui sure to make your summer fun.

1. The 37th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival: If you’re travelling with your partner or with friends and are looking for an activity that will include good wine, better food and great entertainment, then the 37th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival is for you. This annual celebration features some of the best cuisine on island with cooking demos from world-renowned chefs and amazing wine from Maui and all around the world. This year the festival will run from June 7th until June 10th 2018. Book your tickets today!

2. Maui Film Festival: But of course! This amazing festival is a MUST for this summer. The very popular and exciting occasion brings together local and international movie stars, writers, directors and more to celebrate cinema. This renowned event is always more than satisfactory and includes “Taste of” culinary events, parties, and more. Learn more about this amazing experience by reading our blog post about the 2018 Maui Film Festival.

3. 4th of July: If you’ve never spent a 4th of July on Maui then you’re in for it! Fireworks are deemed illegal here on the islands with the exception of special occasions and one of those happens to be the 4th of July. So whether you plan on catching a glimpse of the fireworks from a 4th of July cocktail cruise or head out for a fabulous dinner in Wailea, either way, once the sun sets the entire island will light up with fireworks so you can’t go wrong. Cheers!

4. 63rd Annual Makawao Rodeo and Paniolo Parade: If you’re on Maui during the week of the 4th of July then we recommend you head upcountry to check out the island’s annual rodeo. This July extravaganza runs from July 6th to the 8th. Grab your cowboy or cowgirl boots and see some of the island’s finest barrel racing, bull riding and more!

5. Friday Maui Town Parties: On every Friday of the month, people will be hitting the streets as some part of Maui will be celebrating a “First, Second, Third or Fourth” Friday event. First Fridays kickoff in Wailuku, Second Friday is set in Lahaina on Front Street, Third Friday in Makawao and Fourth Friday in Kihei. If you enjoy food trucks, free live entertainment, and an evening under the stars, then these Maui Friday events are for you!
