Hamilton is packed with events in the summer and the North End is no exception. Living so close to some of the city’s prime outdoor spaces means we can walk to many of these events.
On July 1st the City will be hosting a Canada Day celebration at Bayfront Park. The family fun event starts at 4pm and cumulates with fireworks at 10pm. For more information check out www.hamilton.ca/attractions/festivals-events/hamilton-canada-day-bayfront-park.
On July 15th & 16th Pier 4 will welcome the Because Beer 2022 event. There will be music, vendors, and of course beer. This event requires tickets. Find out more at https://www.becausebeer.ca/tickets.
At Pier 8 you can hear free live music every Thursday evening. Bring a chair or a blanket. Music starts at 6:30pm. You can find out more info at https://www.hamiltonwaterfront.com/music-on-the-waterfront/.
Our neighbourhood also has some local events happening. Head on down to the Sunset Cultural Gardens at Strachan and Bay for full moon gatherings. July’s full moon happens on July 13th and is called the Thunder Moon because of the number of thunder storms that occur in July. At sunset this full moon will rise in the southeast. Full moon gatherings in Sunset Garden happen when there are clear skies. You can also head over to the garden anytime of day to enjoy the columbine, allium, teasel and other flowers blooming throughout the summer.
Finally, keep your eye out for a new North End neighbour-led event. Planning for a “Walk the Block” event is currently underway, with its goal to encourage people to get out of their cars and explore their neighbourhood by foot.
The North End Neighbourhood Association meets the first Wednesday of every month. Meetings are currently on zoom and start at 7pm. Everyone is welcome. You can find out about our meetings by signing up for our newsletter. We are also on Facebook and Twitter.
