Our Proud History

The Mareeba Multicultural Festival is a highly successful annual event that brings the Far North Queensland community together to celebrate the cultural depth of our region and promote cultural understanding and mutual respect. The free, one day Festival includes dance and music by hundreds of performers from different ethnic groups and fabulous food from more than 20 stalls, providing opportunities to experience many different cuisines.

Social cohesion, acceptance and mutual understanding are promoted through the sharing of different cultural experiences.

The Mareeba Multicultural Festival is a free public event for the Mareeba community, a celebrated signature event for the Mareeba Shire, and a regional tourism highlight on the Atherton Tablelands and Tropical North Queensland event calendar and importantly a key event for the Mareeba Shire and Tablelands regional community.

A key driver of the success of the festival is the continuing commitment of the culturally diverse Mareeba community.
