Following directions from the federal government, and in the best interest of our local community in regards to COVID-19, the committee regret to advise that the

2020 Atherton Maize Festival is CANCELLED.

The committee understand it is a difficult and uncertain time for our local community, not-for-profits, and businesses.We are devastated to have to cancel this years parade; however, know it is in the best interest of our local community.

We would like to thank the generous support we have received so far from the local community.  If you have committed to sponsorship, our ambassador program or in the running of our parade, we will be in contact with you in the coming week.
