How to explain the Maui Tropical Plantation? It’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that. You can nibble on local delicacies at one of several restaurants — Mill House Dining, Maui Chef’s Table, or Mill House Coffee. Tummy full, now is the time to take a plantation tour, but you should definitely wait for the full digestion to kick in before attempting any of the zip lines. If you get lost, you might even stumble on a wedding taking place or a posh private event on the property.
Yes, Maui Tropical Plantation is a lot of things, but it also happens to be a fantastic live music concert and entertainment venue. If you are looking for a great show to attend, check the plantation’s events calendar to see what’s coming up. The venue often hosts well-known Hawaiian artists as well as larger shows that include multiple performers.
As of this writing, Maui Tropical Plantation is set to host the first annual Shaka Fest on Saturday, April 9th. If you really want to get a swift injection of Hawaiian spirit, this is the place to do it! The event will include performances by Katchafire, Maoli, Kimie, Jordan T, Sly Dog, Nuff Sedd, and more.
This could be an excellent (and low-cost) activity for couples, as well as big groups.
In the past, Maui Tropical Plantation has hosted well-known (at least to us) local artists, like The Green and Maxi Priest. Last year it put on the excellent Hawaiian Music Festival, which included over a dozen different performances and beautiful hula demonstrations. This family-friendly event featured a fun kid’s play area and lots of delicious food carts that served Hawaiian favorites, like Poi Mochi and kombucha, as well as more conventional dishes, like burgers and fries.
