The Cypress Community Festival takes place annually on the last Saturday of July. It celebrates the incorporation of the City of Cypress, originally known as Dairy City — there were more cows than people!
Festival Day begins the Cypress 5k/10k Run/Walk that ends on Orange Avenue in front of the Cypress Civic Center. The activities then move to Oak Knoll Park, where the Festival Grounds officially open just before 9am.
Attendees can start the day with a a hot pancake breakfast served by the Cypress Kiwanis at the east end of the Cypress Community Center.
The one-day festival includes chili and salsa competitions, a car show and beer garden. Guests can enjoy a kids area with rides and game booths, a public safety “island” that features local police and firefighters, a Cypress Police K-9 demonstration, softball vs. baseball, and stages filled with live entertainment.
