Starry Night Moon Dance – takes place at Tommy Bahama’s Tropical Cafe at The Shops at Wailea.

Places to Stay
The film festival takes place in Wailea, Maui, so we would recommend staying in one of our Wailea vacation rentals or Wailea condos to minimize your drive times. However, the island isn’t so large you couldn’t rent any Maui vacation rental and commute to the event.
