13 spooktacular ways to enjoy Halloween on Maui

There are two awesome facts about Halloween this year on Maui:

  1. It falls on a Saturday, which means you can really let loose and party, and
  2. It’s Maui — one of the best places on Earth to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve!

In the midst of some midnight gravedigging, we unearthed 13 spooktacular events for you to enjoy this Halloween on Maui. Check them out and enjoy!*

The Huge, Obvious Halloween Party on Front Street in Lahaina


It’s called the “Mardi Gras of the Pacific” not because of its size (25,000 people is pretty big but nowhere near actual Mardi Gras big), but because of the wild, eclectic, unbridled fun to be had.

The streets are closed to motorized traffic and everyone gets in costume and lets loose. If you’re the party type, you have no excuse not to be walking around Lahaina Front Street this Halloween.

There’s also a costume contest between 7-9 under the banyan tree, as well as a Keiki parade at 4:30pm. Get all the juicy details here.

+This Need to Know Info

*Along with general courteous “party-manners,” please be mindful of the Hawaiian host culture. Many areas around Maui are considered sacred to Native Hawaiians, and some recent Halloweens in the past in Lahaina have created some controversy. Also, drink responsibly and be aware of intoxication checkpoints. If you’re impaired and can’t drive, call a cab or Uber (yes, Uber’s on Maui) and stay safe while enjoying Halloween on Maui!
