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 Maize Festival is staged by volunteers who form the Maize Festival Committee.
