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.

    Join us on Halton Region’s new Pumpkins to Pastries Trail and explore the best local food, farms and fall experiences Halton has to offer.

    The Pumpkin Trail was created in 2013 to showcase Halton’s vibrant agricultural community and encourage visitors and residents alike to celebrate the autumn harvest at agri-food locations throughout the region.

    Food trails are very popular and provide a unique opportunity to sample local food offerings, engage with the people who produce them and experience, firsthand, the benefits and fun of sourcing local products.

    LIVING BUILDING THINKING:
    Art and Expressionism
    September 1 - December 3, 2016

    Living Building Thinking: Art and Expressionism explores the development and trajectories of Expressionism in art from the early 19th century to present day. The term Expressionism is invariably identified with the period of art and social activism in Germany between 1905 and 1937, encompassing visual art, literature, philosophy, theatre, film and photography and architecture. The exhibition offers a rich and thought-provoking perspective on the relationship of the artist and society, and the ever-changing responses and visual expressions that circulate through shared hopes and aspirations for social awareness and change.

    Drawn from the extensive collection of the McMaster Museum of Art, the exhibition comprises almost 100 paintings, drawings, prints, books, camera work and video—from formative historical works of the 19th century, hallmarks of the modern age, to contemporary works that include Canadian artists who underscore the continuing relevance and challenges in today’s society.


    Living Building Thinking: Art and Expressionism is organized and circulated by the McMaster Museum of Art with the generous support of the Museums Assistance Program, Canadian Heritage.

    Domestic Vessels from the Greek and Roman World

    This new antiquities exhibition in the Museum's Togo Salmon Gallery presents a picture of daily domestic life in the ancient world through objects familiar to Greek and Roman households.
