Large 1920px Wide-Maitland Aroma 2022

Thanks for attending Aroma in 2023!

The warm aroma of freshly ground coffee beans, rich melted chocolate and decadent dishes saw crowds of more than 15,000 coffee and chocolate lovers head to Central Maitland on 12 and 13 August 2023.

A huge thank you to our sponsors Norco and Milklab for supplying all milk, and Bliss Coffee Roasters for providing our coffee fixes over the weekend at the festival. Thank you also to Estia Health for joining us as our Community Partner.

Our stallholders featured expert chocolatiers, talented baristas, the best of the region’s winemakers, brewers and sweet and savoury food stalls providing food for the large crowds all weekend. 

A highlight of the event program was our Flavour Stage, hosted by Special Guest Reece Hignell,  featuring a  variety of demonstrations from local business owners, chefs and stallholders.

A big thank you to Maitland/Rutherford Girl Guides for assisting in the Babychinnos Kids Zone and activities and all of our talented musicians for flooding the event site with beautiful performances.

Stay tuned for more information about our Festival in 2024.
