Northwest Hosting

Maryfest is proud to be a member of the Northwest Festival Hosting Association an organization made up of eleven festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Maryfest joined this close knit group in 2001 whose operating philosophy is to work together and commit to supporting each other by sending a delegation to each members festival. By being a part of Northwest Festivals, Marysville can rely on the participation of at least 10 other community floats/festivals in our Grand Parade.

A hosting package is offered at each community's festival which generally includes accommodations, receptions, a formal or semi-formal dinner, entertainment, a rose planting ceremony performed by the Portland Royal Rosarians and a farewell breakfast on Sunday morning. Of course, the members are also participating in the Grand Parade!
