How to get involved


Town Park will come to life on Sunday 6 November from 10am to 4pm for our annual Maroondah Festival.

Maroondah Festival is an exciting opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate with a diverse program of entertainment and activities for people of all ages and interests.

We are inviting businesses and organisations to participate in Maroondah Festival 2022 by hosting a food site, business and market site, display, stage performance or workshop/activity.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the online application form below.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss your participation in more detail please don’t hesitate to contact us:

Community Display Site

 Community groups are invited to showcase their products and services by having a display site.

Community Food Site

Community organisations are invited to host a food or drinks stall as a fundraising opportunity.

Community Food sites are allocated via an internal ballot which will be conducted by Maroondah City Council. Groups will only be granted one site each but may apply for up to three sites to ensure a better chance of selection. The group will be allocated the first site their name is selected against and their name will be withdrawn from any further ballot. The site numbers will be drawn at random. This ballot will be conducted internally at Maroondah City Council under supervision of Maroondah City Council Representatives. In the case where only one group applies for a particular site, it shall be allocated to that group without a ballot. If a site does not receive any applications then it may be offered for ballot again to unsuccessful groups. Council reserves the right to sell the site to a commercial trader if no community interest for the site can be found.

Before applying for a Community Food Site, please read the Maroondah Festival 2022 - Community Food Ballot Information.
