Maifest 2020 - Celebrating with a "birthday parade"!

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 be donating $5 for each vehicle in the parade – about $750 –  to the local City of Brenham small business fund, local first responders, and local health care workers.

Brenham Maifest appreciates the generosity of James Pharaon in sharing his collection Maifest coronations for download for FREE this weekend only.

“In a normal year, today would be the beginning of the 130th Brenham Maifest, a tradition that is woven into the very fabric of Brenham itself. Today would be the Junior Coronation, tomorrow morning would be the Maifest parade and tomorrow evening would be the Senior Coronation. Well, this year everything is a bit different thanks to COVID-19. There are no coronations, although there will be a parade of sorts tomorrow morning.

But Maifest must go on! And so, in celebration of Brenham Maifest, I am making these coronations from the last 10 years available for download for FREE during this Maifest weekend so that we can continue to celebrate Maifest past, even if we can’t celebrate in person this year. Happy Maifest, everyone!”

New Coronation Date is Set!

Maifest is pleased to announce the new date for our 2020 Junior and Senior Coronations. Please mark your calendars for the weekend of October 3rd, 2020!

At this time, if you have not ordered your costume, please hold off until further notice. If you have already ordered your costume, once activities resume, your child will have the same costume that has been assigned.

We are committed to providing a great celebration in 2020, and volunteers will continue to work diligently to make this a great Maifest. As things evolve, we will continue to provide you updates through your email, social media, and this website. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me at catherinekenjura@gmail.com.

Thank you all for your support!
