We honor the life and achievements of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, known as The Father of Modern China, during our annual Sun Yat-sen Festival at Wo Hing Museum & Cookhouse on Front Street in Lahaina from 1 to 7 pm. This year, we celebrate the 150th Anniversary of his birth with a new exhibit, film tributes and displays depicting the life of Sun Yat-sen from Maui to China. Try Chinese martial arts on the museum lawn, or cultural activities like calligraphy and knot tying. Enjoy a presentation in the old Cookhouse on the significance of Dr. Sun’s work and his connection to Maui. Listen to Chinese and Japanese traditional music on the erhu and gu zheng string instruments, flute and taiko drums. Sample Cantonese foods and Chinese teas in the garden. Free admission.
