Dundas, already internationally recognized for the Cacti produced by the local Ben Veldhuis Cactus Greenhouses, the group received Ben’s approval of the name, “Cactus Festival”. The first festival lasted 9 days, and began with a parade. It featured sports events, a film night, a casino night, a dance at the community center, and midway rides in Dundas driving park Over the years, it grew and in 1979, the downtown merchants agreed to hold their sidewalk sale as part of the Festival. Other craft vendors and exhibitors were invited too.

The festival moved to King St. and the reputation of the festival grew, year by year. For the sum of $1.00, the Jaycees sold the rights to the Town. Since 1979, the festival has been tirelessly organized by local volunteers; The Cactus Festival of Dundas Committee.

    The story of Anne Frank and her life of hiding in the Secret Annex during the Second World War is a story of perseverance and bravery. Living for almost 2 years in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Holland, she recorded her daily thoughts in a journal. Today, her journal is a testament to the prejudice that was faced by so many during the Holocaust.

    The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is proud to present “Anne Frank- A History for Today” from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Featuring the story of Anne Frank and artifacts never before displayed in Canada. The exhibit will also focus on Canada’s role in the Liberation of Holland and the prejudices and discrimination that some Canadians faced, including those in the RCAF.

    Time daily: 9:00am - 5:00pm, regular admission rates apply.
