A free street festival offering live music, food vendors, local artisans, jewelry, fashion, magic and a special late ferry so guests from Maui can come party!
To accommodate the special Friday event, OED has teamed up with Expeditions Ferry and the Lāna‘i Chamber of Commerce to provide round-trip ferry and ground transportation between Maui and Lāna‘i including a special late-night ferry that departs Manele Harbor at 9:45 p.m. Expeditions’ last ferry to Maui on a regular day is at 6:45 p.m.
The 5th Friday Lāna‘i Package includes a round-trip ferry ride between Lahaina Harbor and Manele Harbor, round-trip ground transportation between Manele Harbor and Lāna‘i City, and an event passport. Visiting participating business and collecting stamps for the passport gains entry into a free prize drawing. Details can be found at www.fifthfridaylanai.com.
Residents and visitors can choose to depart from Lahaina on the Expeditions ferry at 9:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m. or 3:15 p.m.; however, departure from Manele Harbor is limited to 9:45 p.m. only.

The Friday Town Party event, which runs from 5:30-8:00 p.m., will feature over 30 vendors and participants. There will be food booths and restaurants serving up special local favorites as well as several music and entertainment venues.
“We look forward to welcoming you on Lāna‘i for Fifth Friday and hope that you will rediscover small town Hawai‘i. Please share with your friends that Lāna‘i Small Businesses are OPEN and that each additional day visitor to Lāna‘i makes a huge positive impact on the local small and micro businesses” said Brad Bunn, Chair of the Lāna‘i Chamber of Commerce.
