Announcement from the President

2020 Maifest Royalty SerenadeAfter much consideration, the Board of Directors of the Brenham Maifest Association unanimously voted to cancel the Maifest scheduled for October 3rd. This year has provided unprecedented obstacles that we have never experienced before, and every decision has been guided by the health and safety of the participants and volunteers. After garnering feedback and careful deliberation, Maifest has decided that gathering children, along with their families, for multiple practices, a Maifest coronation and parade is not the safest option for them or our volunteers.

This was not an easy decision, as Maifest has not been canceled since World War II.  We are still exploring creative ways to honor this 130-year old tradition that celebrates the youth of our community.

The support from the community has been incredibly humbling. Thank you for your continued support.  We look forward to again celebrating together in the future!

Catherine Kenjura
President, Brenham Maifest Association

Everyone had a blast at the Maifest 130th Birthday ParadeCoronavirus-Style!

Maifest 2020 isn’t the same due to the COVID-19 situation, but we couldn’t let the weekend go by without our annual parade – so this year we did it in line with the times. YOU make the parade! Families decorated their cars and got decked out in their favorite Maifest regalia. See more photos and share yours on our Facebook page.

Maifest is proud to have donated $5 for each vehicle in the parade  to the local City of Brenham small business fund, local first responders, and local health care workers.

May Day Fun!
