In addition to ARTwalk and Concerts at The Shops, Pau Hana at The Shops is back for the month of June with a full roster of talent. Pau Hana at The Shops is more than just a happy hour, it’s a time to celebrate the end of the work week with live musical performances by Maui’s talented musicians. Every Friday from 4-6 p.m. musicians perform for guests on the lower lever near the surf shop area and on the upper level by the luxury retailers.
New for the month of June, The Shops at Wailea proudly announces the Market at The Shops, a farm fresh shopping experience. Launched in cooperation with the Maui County Farm Bureau, the Market at The Shops is committed to supporting agriculture on Maui by providing a place for residents and visitors alike to find, connect with and learn about farm-fresh and sustainably grown produce, specialty food and artisanal goods. Starting Wednesday, June 28, the Market at The Shops will be held on the ground floor and take place on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 4-6 p.m.
