Lahaina Civic Center
The Lahaina Civic Center is a sports, convention and entertainment complex located at Kaaahi St & Honoapiilani Hwy in Lahaina, Hawaii, on the island of Maui. It is the site of the annual Maui Invitational Tournament, held every November during Thanksgiving week and hosted by Chaminade University. Other events held at the Civic Center throughout the year include the World Youth Basketball Tournament in July, numerous concerts, trade shows, community festivals and fairs.
The main building consists of the following:

The arena floor can accommodate side-by-side recreation courts with the North and South bleachers retracted. The Gymnasium is the site of many events in the complex.
