Hamilton Winterfest 2022

Message from the Festival

Hamilton Winterfest is back! Last year was an extremely challenging year for community and event organizers. We really wanted to see you all in-person but the shifting sands of COVID restrictions made this impossible. This year, as restrictions lift and vaccination rates climb, we’re excited to be back presenting you with amazing experiences to explore our 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 February 3rd to February 21st. 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.

All Hamilton Winterfest events will be complying with the COVID-19 restrictions set by the City of Hamilton and Province of Ontario. At present this means all presenters, artists, volunteers and guests must be fully vaccinated. We encourage those who can get fully vaccinated to do so to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Many thanks to all of our funders, sponsors, partners and volunteers for coming back full-force with us this year to bring you what we think will be the best Hamilton Winterfest ever!

Stay healthy. Stay happy. Come join us on the Hamilton Winterfest expedition.
