The Mareeba Multicultural Festival is held annually in August. The program starts at 10.00am with non-stop entertainment including Aboriginal, Torres Strait, PNG, Filipino, Italian, Spanish, Albanian, Greek, Polynesian and Australian performers. Food stalls from a range of cultures, and the perfect weather in Mareeba at this time of the year, make this a day out not to be missed.

The program ends at 4pm. Admission is free with a range of donated prizes drawn throughout the day. Winners must be present at the time of the draw.

This is a chance for visitors to attend a major local community event.

The Mareeba Shire is home to people from some 75 different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. The festival highlights this diversity and harmony.
