Street Sale & Vendor Marketplace

Every year at the Dundas Cactus Festival, our local businesses take to the street to display their products and services during the Festival weekend. Dundas is a well-known shopping destination, and it’s a great opportunity to discover all the great shops in our downtown core.

In addition, we welcome a large variety of product and food vendors, community and service groups. Want to learn more about what’s going on in Dundas and the surrounding communities? Visiting the Vendor Marketplace on King Street is a great place to start!

Hungry while walking at the Festival? There’s something for everyone from ethnic specialities to fair favourites.

Festival Patio

Located adjacent to the Festival Mainstage, there’s no better spot to take a break and enjoy a cold beer from Shawn & Ed Brewing or a selection of wine from Flat Rock Cellars.

This year, you will be able to purchase drink tickets using cash or Square payment systems. Our friendly patio staff look forward to meeting you!

Patio access is restricted to patrons 19 and over, and capacity limits are strongly enforced.

Maker’s Market

A new addition in 2019, the Maker’s Market gives festival visitors the chance to watch artisans demonstrate their craft and, in some cases, get hands-on! 

From concrete sculpting to sign making and textile art, upcycled fashions and the amazing craft of felting, it’s the perfect spot to indulge your love of crafting.
