Kevin Puddister, Curator of the Dundas Museum and Archives

Kevin Puddister is the Curator of the Dundas Museum and Archives. After a tour, we sit down to talk with Kevin about the newly renovated Museum, as well as about the fascinating history of Dundas. The museum is Hamilton’s only privately-run, not-for-profit museum. Admission is by donation: pay what you can. From the Museum website “Maintaining and celebrating the unique identity of Dundas are very important to the community. Over the past fifty years, with the support of our local community, the Museum has built a diverse and intriguing collection of artifacts and documents which connect visitors and researchers with stories of people and events of Dundas past.”

Lisa Anderson – Coordinator, Dundas BIA

Lisa Anderson joins us to talk about the upcoming 17th Annual Dundas International Buskerfest (June 6, 7, 8 – with a special concert on the 5th). Buskerfest brings a big collection of street performers, merchants and food vendors along with the already amazing Downtown Dundas businesses for a three day festival. The street is closed off to create a comfortable, car-free environment. Full disclosure, the Jelly Brothers will be vendors at this year’s Buskerfest as vendors (yes that was a shameless plug)
