For fans of the Barton Art Party, I am happy to announce that it has been re-branded as King Street Art Fete. The monthly art destination for artists, makers, and visitors to experience the neighbourhood has moved south and is happening April 20th. Contact Jim Watts of Vagabond Saints fame for more information.
As you make your way through town, be sure to visit the amazing new Anne Foster store window display by Whitney McMeekin of (Girl On The Wing) that is featured in the windows at 28 James St N, Inside the Lister Block. The iconic store served Hamilton’s music lovers of all kinds for 50+ years. It’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
On the first Friday of every month, admission to the Art Gallery of Hamilton Gallery admission and tours are FREE for everyone from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm.
Miss the 80’s? The Casbah is the place to be the first and third Saturdays of each month featuring RiskyBiz80’s and FirstWave Retrograde you can dance the night away.
Don’t forget that Soundhaus North, the electronic music event is held every second Friday at Park Street Gasworks. featuring live music, experiments in light and sound, art and a DJ.
Interested in watching and being part of a live art competition? Art Battle happens every third Thursday at the Spice Factory; a chance to get up close and personal. Meet the artists, munch on great food and listen to some great tunes. An experience like none other!

Whenever two people meet there are really six people present.
There is each man as he sees himself,
Each man as the other sees him-
And each man as he really is. ~William James 1842-1910
