The Royal Lahaina Resort's beautiful oceanfront setting lends itself well to intimate events and gatherings. In the past, we hosted several concerts including Five for Fighting, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Spin Doctors and Henry Kapono. Additionally, we have also hosted Mai Tai Mix-off events to search for Maui's top bartenders to send to the Royal Kona Resort's Annual Don the Beachcomber Mai Tai Festival.

- 8th Annual Waa Kiakahi Hawaiian Canoe Sailing Festival: May 31, 2013-June 2, 2013. Waa Kiakahi is an event dedicated to traditional Hawaiian canoe sailing and the education of its history. Contrary to ordinary outrigger canoe paddling, this event honors how the ancient Hawaiians actually traveled between the islands - crew members do not make crew changes during races and they travel every island channel connecting the Hawaiian islands.
