Welcome to the Atherton Maize Festival Website

About us

The Maize Festival began in 1962 by the Atherton Branch of the Qld Ambulance Transport Brigade to raise much needed funds.

Today, it is still a community event that aims to raise money for local causes. It is hosted on the Atherton Tablelands, Queensland. In 2012, we celebrated 50 years of the festival and the funds raised were given to Atherton Tableland Local Ambulance Committee to be used to purchase equipment to help train Atherton and Tableland paramedics and ambulance officers. 

 

The Committee and what we do

The Maize Festival is staged by volunteers who form the Maize Festival Committee.
Each year the Maize Festival holds popular events and competitions, which include the Maize Queen contest, best dressed window & premises and the always popular Mardi Gras and Street Parade.
