The Brenham Maifest Association Mission Statement:
“To promote appreciation of the cultural heritage of Washington County by continuing the annual Brenham Maifest celebration and expanding its activities; and to enrich the lives of the citizens of the county, with particular emphasis on the youth of our community; and to receive gifts, donations and funds for these purposes.”
With these words, our Board, Royalty families, supporters, and friends work diligently each year to create a festival that highlights the spirit and celebrates the heritage of our community.
The Brenham Maifest organization is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The annual Maifest is produced through the generosity of many underwriters, volunteers, and supporters. Monies generated by the festival are returned into the community through scholarships and donations benefitting the youth.
