Maleny unites for country fair

AFTER the cancellation of many community and not-for-profit events and fundraising activities since the COVID pandemic began, three primary schools – Conondale State School, Maleny State School and The River School – will host a country fair in Maleny.

The parents’ associations from each school have come together in a spirit of cooperation and mutual support to re-imagine a country fair with free entry for everyone so local communities can come together on Friday, November 26 from 3.30pm.

The Maleny Country Fair will see Maleny State School’s main oval transformed for one evening into a traditional village green filled with stalls offering fresh food and favourite homemade treats, assorted games, a licensed bar, sideshow rides and other attractions, including a mobile farm, fire engine, croquet, netball games and a parade of the TS Centaur Naval Cadets, along with a packed entertainment program featuring local community groups, school bands, choirs, dance groups and associated professional performers.

While entry is free, you will need a ticket to attend, which is available online at

Stall tickets and ride wristbands available to pre-purchase from the website. These are collected at the admission gate on the day (you will need to show your purchase receipt at the time of collection).

At the event there will be one cashier (located in the shed) where cash, cards and mobile devices can be used to purchase stall tickets on the day.
