Chinese New Year Maui Celebration 2018

Chinese New Year is quite the festive celebration in Hawaii, and especially in Lahaina. Chinese culture has played a big role in shaping Hawaii's history and the mixed ethnic backgrounds of its local residents, so we see a lot of enthusiasm and fun when this holiday rolls around. This year will be no exception, so if you're on a Maui vacation in February, and you're free on Friday, the 23rd, you won't want to miss the celebration of the year of the dog!

Revelers will gather for this community celebration at the Wo Hing Museum and Cookhouse, a striking historical site that was built in 1912. It's the perfect venue for Chinese lion dancing, music, and firecrackers, among other lively activities. As always, there is no entry fee, so you can enjoy the memorable experience without factoring it into your budget.

The celebration starts with lighting the firecrackers, and then the lion dance will proceed down Front Street, stopping at various shops and restaurants along the way. Throughout the day, there will also be cultural art activities like calligraphy and knot tying for the whole family.

At the Cookhouse, there will be presentations all about Chinese New Year, including discussions on its fascinating history and traditions. There will also be martial arts demonstrations and instrumental performances, for those who prefer something with a bit more flair. When you're ready to try out a favorite Chinese tradition, try the tea that will be served in the garden. 

To learn more about this year's Chinese New Year celebration, you can visit lahainarestoration.org.

Conveniently, the Wo Hing Museum is located in historic Lahaina Town, where you'll find plenty of places to eat, shop and explore. It's also home to the Lahaina Harbor, where you can book a number of different ocean excursions. If you think you'd like accommodations in the area, we have Lahaina vacation rental homes as well as Lahaina vacation rental condos, depending on the number of people you plan to accommodate. If you need our assistance you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!
