This is Christa’s 2nd year with the festival. She is working on some exciting partnerships for 2023 & can't wait to share the news! This year is an enormous year for any business to get involved in this great community festival. The city of Cambridge will also be turning 50 in 2023! What a pivotal year to put your company stamp on the festival! When Christa first arrived in Cambridge a few short years ago, she realized that Cambridge Celebrates Canada Day was just what she was looking for! This Festival has been the key to getting involved in her community.
