1st Annual Maui Comedy Festival in West Maui

Halloween 2014 weekend in Lahaina.
October 27, 2014

The Lahaina Halloween festivities begin Thursday, October 30th.  The first annual Maui Comedy Festival presents over 30 different comedians performing at 6 different venues in Lahaina - from Thursday, October 30th to Sunday, November 2nd.  This three-day event flaunts the historic town of Lahaina and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.     

Below are the featured venues for this event:

  • Hard Rock Cafe - This venue was built for sound and fun.  Reggie Watts will be kicking off the comedy festival here, at 6:00 pm on Thursday, Oct 30th.
  • Maui Theatre - This multi-million dollar venue, located on Front Street, was built for high-quality performances, with 680-seat stadium seating and 8-channel surround sound.
  • Hale Pa'ahao/Lahaina Prison - Was once a prison in the 1850s, during the whaling era. In 1967, it was transformed from a collapsing ruin to an enjoyable outdoor museum.
  • Lahaina Yacht Club - Founded in 1965, the clubhouse offers oceanfront dining for members and guests, with great views of the outer island of Kaho'olave, Lanai, and Molokai.
  • Pi Artisan Pizzeria - Serves Farm-to-Table, organic, fresh, local ingredients handcrafted into the best Artisan Pizza available.
  • Longhi's - Opened in 1976, this popular restaurant has great food, impeccable service, and a wonderful atmosphere.
