Sorry, This Year's Festival has been Cancelled
We regretfully announce that Cypress Sawmill Festival 2019 has been cancelled due to massive flooding in the Park and the threat of more inclement weather to come. Safety comes first. We love our community and this festival and wish to express our sincerest gratitude to all of our volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and partners who make this event a true family affair. We would also like to acknowledge the graciousness of all the bands and our sound production company who were all very understanding of the situation.
