Bringing the Winter to life takes Beautiful, Bold and Bright and ideas. We’ve engaged artists from across the country and around the world to create more than 20 custom installations and murals that all incorporate light and interaction.

Spread across the incredible space on the rooftop of Jackson Square, you can explore the nooks and crannies to find a Volkwagon Super Beetle converted into a miniature city, glowing poems, glittering sequins, an interactive LED bonfire and Woodland creatures brought to life in 3D.

Over the 10-day exhibition the HUB also offers two free concerts, an outdoor ice rink, theatre performances, food vendors and a Family Day Extravaganza in partnership with the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hamilton Public Library.

Hamilton Winterfest also celebrates more than 70+ events across the City by arts, culture and sports organizations including Hamilton Fashion Week, FROST BITES, Levity Comedy, Hamilton Philharmonic, Hamilton Bull Dogs and many more.
