Maui Shows and Nightlife


Maui showsThough luaus are the most common type of show on Maui, there are several other options for live entertainment as well. For visitors seeking fun after the sun goes down, we highly recommend reserving tickets for one of Maui’s most unique performances.


Iao Theater

The Iao Theater, nestled in the heart of Wailuku, stands as a cultural gem and architectural icon. Built in 1928, its Spanish Mission Revival style architecture and ornate detailing reflect the era’s elegance and grandeur. Originally designed as a venue for both live performances and cinema, the theater has served as a cornerstone of the community, hosting a myriad of events ranging from plays and concerts to film festivals and community gatherings. Renovated in recent years to restore its former glory, the Iao Theater continues to captivate audiences with its historic charm and vibrant cultural offerings, embodying the rich heritage of Maui’s performing arts scene. See the Iao Theater website for the show calendar.


Maui Arts & Cultural Center

The Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) stands as a premier cultural hub on the Valley Isle, offering a diverse array of artistic performances, exhibitions, and educational programs. Founded in 1994, the center encompasses multiple venues, including a state-of-the-art concert hall, theaters, and galleries, providing a platform for local and international artists to showcase their talents. From world-class musical performances and dance recitals to contemporary art exhibitions and traditional Hawaiian cultural events, the MACC serves as a dynamic space that fosters creativity, dialogue, and community engagement. Visit the MACC website for concerts, art parties, and event schedules.
