The Cactus Festival is celebrating 40 years this weekend (Aug 14-16), and they’re celebrating big! Down with Webster is headlining Friday night on the main stage, and the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra is performing with Thought Beneath Film on Saturday, followed by 54-40.
Besides the fantastic music, there’s lots going on this year at the festival, including a Family Fun Zone, the Baby Cactus Contest, the Cactus Festival parade, tons of vendors, and more! For a full schedule of events, or to simply learn more about the festival, check out their website, or find them on Facebook and Twitter.
Ingie Metwally had festival president, Steve Deighton, on the morningfile earlier this week to chat about what’s new with the festival in its 40th year, and what people can look forward to. Check it out below!
