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.

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. And, be sure to visit the brewery for a tour & tasting! It’s right next door!

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