Everyone is invited to the Cypress Festival Mixer

As part of the build-up to Festival Day, Cypress Community College joins with the Cypress Area Chamber of Commerce to hold a Festival Mixer.

This year, the Festival Mixer will be held on July 26, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. just west of the pond in the center of campus. Food will be served. A no-host bar will be manned.

Members of the Cypress Community Festival Committee will personally thank Festival Sponsors. It’s a chance to meet and rub elbows with residents, business people, all levels of administrators from local school districts, Cypress City staff members, and local elected officials.

The cost is $5/person, payable on entry.

School construction to sideline parking for Cypress Community Festival

Construction activity for upgrades and modernization at Cypress High School will provide a streamlined parking flow and an all-new student quad design. (See below.)

But it will also prevent the use of the Cypress High School parking lot during the Cypress Community Festival.

The parking lots at the Cypress Community Center and Oak Knoll Park fill almost instantly on the morning of the Festival, not least with spaces reserved for entertainers and vendors. (Please be nice to Festival volunteers directing traffic!)

If you arrive to find the driveways to the parking lots at Oak Knoll Park blocked off, look for additional parking further west along Orange Ave., at the Cypress Civic Center, Oxford Academy, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

A shuttle bus will run between the Festival Grounds at Oak Knoll Park and the parking lots at the Civic Center, Oxford Academy, and the Church.

Construction is also taking place at Oxford Academy. The construction includes new band and choir classrooms, and modernization of STEAM labs, plus security fencing, cameras and locks. This should not interfere with parking.

Record-setting number of submissions to the Cypress Community Festival Coloring Contest!

Be sure to check out the 11 a.m. Coloring Contest awards presentation (at the children’s stage).

The winning art and student artists will be showcased.

The video below features a mere sampling of the record 648 entries received from the kindergarten through third graders of our community’s schools.



Anyone who wants their art returned, that was not displayed, may pick it up from the Information Booth during the Festival, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or via arrangement with the coloring contest coordinator (email leahowinter@gmail.com).

WAY TO GO, STUDENT ARTISTS ???? Thanks for sharing your talents!
