Made in Dundas: Community Family Festival

Made in Dundas Community Family Festival

The Made in Dundas Community Family Festival returns to the Dundas Museum and Archives on Saturday May 23th from  11am – 3pm, with a full roster of free activities and crafts for families and kids of all ages. Organizers of this year’s event feel the expanded  building and its surrounding grounds will offer even more opportunities for fun and learning.

The Museum plans a number of activities this year, including horse-drawn tours of King Street with Stan Nowak, small animal interpretation including Angora rabbits, sheep and chickens, and a display of restored Dundas fire trucks. Other activities will include face-painting, corn husk doll and paper hat making, pioneer games, and boat making.

This year’s event features the Giant’s Rib Escarpment Education Network who will be bringing fossils from their collection for kids to inspect, touch, and study. Morden’s will be bringing activities from their Family Farm. Capture the Moment Photography will again provide a dress-up photo booth with costumes from all eras of Dundas. The Dundas Valley School of Art Print Studio will let you try your hand at silk screening and other printing activities! Studio Babette Puppet Theatre is back, providing puppet shows and puppet making activities on the lawn.

New this year, the Museum will have BBQ lunch for sale, and the Village Bakery will set up shop in our tea room once again with some tasty treats!

With everything coming together so fast this year, the Museum is very excited to open the summer season with Made In Dundas! Be sure to tell your friends and we hope you can all join us on this festive day!

Check out this year’s fantastic supporters!
