This week Lahaina will host the second official Maui Friday Town Party of the month. The event will also be a celebration for Veteran’s Day, and Front Street will be decorated with alternating US and Hawaiian flags to commemorate our veterans.

Some participating Lahaina restaurants will offer 10-20% discounts from 4-8 p.m. This is a good way to get free parking for the evening (restaurant validation).

MEET THE ARTISTS OF I KEIA MANAWA (IN THIS TIME) ART EXHIBIT OPENING Saturday, November 12. Starts at 5:30 p.m. in the MACC’s Schaefer International Gallery. Free.


Four Hawaiian women artists have gathered to create “I Keia Manawa (In This Time),” a multi-media investigation into “social issues of historical relevance with Hawaiian cultural, environmental, and political ideas.”

The works featured by artists Maile Andrade, Kalili Chun, April Drexel and Kapulani Landgraf will include mixed media in the form of fiber, glass, painting, photography and instillation-based work.

The exhibit makes its debut this weekend, where all four artists will be present to meet with the public.

“WORD BECOMES FLESH” POETRY SLAM Sunday, November 13. Starts 7:30 p.m. at the MACC. Tickets are $12,$28 and $38.

National Poetry Slam champion Marc Bamuthi Joseph presents “Word Becomes Flesh,” a show blending spoken word with hip hop music and dance.

The show uses poetry, hip-hop dance, live music and visual art to tell the story of young single father’s perspective while his unborn son develops for 9 months in the womb.
The mixed emotions and trials themed in the show are examined critically lyrically and choreographically. Word literally becomes flesh as the show attempts to translate lyric to choreography.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the MACC Box Office at 242-7469 or online at
