Lahaina is in West Maui, Maui County, Hawaii, United States, and the gateway to the famous Kaanapali and Kapalua beach resorts north of the community. Lahaina encompasses the coast along Hawaii Route 30 from a tunnel at the south end, through Olawalu up the CDP of Napili-Honokowai is to the north.

Halloween was a major celebration in Lahaina and has become a signature event in the past decades with crowds averaging between 20,000 to 30,000. The evening starts off closing Front Street to cars so the Keiki Parade of children in costumes can begin. Eventually adults in costumes join in and by dark, the street changes to one big party, which has earned the event the title of "Mardi Gras of the Pacific". However as of 2008 this celebration has been curtailed due to a the objections of a group of cultural advisers who have upheld the permits necessary as they feel Halloween is an affront to the Hawaiian culture. In 2009 the event was poorly attended as the street was not closed and no costume contest took place. 2010 will not have any organized events as permits have not been allowed for the contests or street closures.
Every November, Lahaina hosts the Maui Invitational, one of the top early-season tournaments in college basketball.
Lahaina also hosts the finish of the Vic-Maui Yacht Race, the longest offshore sailboat race on the West Coast, which starts in Victoria, BC, Canada.
