This Sunday, February 8 is the annual Lobster-Fest event.

Held in the MACC’s Yokouchi Pavillion, the “VERY casual affair” and New Orleans-themed feast benefits the Wailuku Rotary Club and offers music, beverages, a surprise auction and – you guessed it – lobster.

If you’re going for the food, plan to enjoy a menu featuring:


  • Cajun Lobster and Roasted Corn Dip served with corn chips and lavash
  • Crispy Shrimp Bundles with smokey dipping sauce
  • Blackened Chicken with spiced aioli

Buffet-Style Dinner

  • Chopped Romaine Topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet Maui onions, sliced peppers, and garlic croutons with assorted dressings
  • Traditional Steamed Live Maine Lobster from Kona served with drawn butter
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Chicken, Shrimp and Andouille Jambalaya

New Orleans-Style Desserts

  • Rum Raisin Bread Pudding with praline sauce
  • Lemon Squares
  • Sweet Pecan and Date Surprises
  • Southern Pecan Bars
  • Dark Chocolate Fudge

As you dine, the live jazz quartet Men in Black is on hand to provide entertainment. There is also a no-host bar with adult beverages (we predict Hurricanes) available for purchase.

The event starts at 1 p.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. and tickets are $100 per person.


Proceeds support the Ka Hale A Ke Ola Resource Center and Hui Malama, as well as the local and global charitable projects of the Rotary Club of Wailuku.
