In 2004 a group of volunteers met to blend ideas in the hope of promoting tourism in our area (West Elgin). As a result of this brainstorming session Cactus, Cattle And Cowboys was born.
During these years of growth Cactus, Cattle And Cowboys has relied on volunteer support and sponsorship's from local businesses, as well as our local municipality for funding.
Cactus, Cattle And Cowboys has grown to attracting increasing numbers of visitors each year from across the province and the neighboring USA.
Our event, presently, is one day. It is packed with interesting and fun filled activities. A High Noon horse parade through the town, food and retail vendors, horse demonstrations and breed displays. Cowboy meet and greet for the kids, along with various other activities such as live music all day thru the fair ground and children's activities.
We look forward to seeing you and your family at this years Cactus, Cattle And Cowboys!!
