Nā Mele O Maui takes place this coming Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater.

Established in 1972 for the youth of Maui County, Nā Mele O Maui, Maui’s only county wide Hawaiian song and art competition, is dedicated to cultural preservation and perpetuation of Hawaiian mele, language and arts.

Nā Mele O Maui strives to foster education and enlightenment of Hawaiʻi’s heritage.

In 2002, the event was honored with the prestigious Kahili Award in the Hawaiʻi Visitors & Convention Bureau’s “Keep It Hawai‘i” annual awards program.

Nā Mele O Maui helps instill pride in youth by providing a rare opportunity for many of them to perform in public and compete for excellence with the support of the community.


Doors open at 8:30 a.m. Admission is free.
