Message from the Festival

Goodbye 2020! It’s been an exceptional year and we’re guessing you’re itching to shift into a new one. Hamilton Winterfest is thrilled to help you leap into 2021 with some engaging opportunities to explore your city.

Hamilton Winterfest is a co-production between The City of Hamilton, local arts non-profit Cobalt Connects, and a long list of community partners who bring specialized programming to life from January 29th to February 15th. From the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hamilton Fringe Festival, to the Hamilton Public Library, SoupFest and Neighbourhood Associations – Winterfest gives you every excuse to get out of the house or hop online to connect with your community.

Many thanks to all of our funders, sponsors, partners and volunteers for pivoting with the festival this year. Your ongoing support is invaluable.

Stay healthy. Stay happy. Embrace the season with Hamilton Winterfest.
