Hamilton Arts Week

Celebrate the arts across your city from June 3-9, 2017


Hamilton Arts Week is an annual civic celebration of the arts that launched in June 2015. In its first year, Hamilton Arts Week saw a busy week of arts events presented by over 50 partnering arts organizations, with awareness driven by an in-kind ad campaign in The Hamilton Spectator and online engagement. In 2016, our second year saw even more community events along with our Opening Launch, the City of Hamilton Arts Awards After Party, and a Closing Celebration.
