Patio Season

What's not to like about a patio? Fresh air, stiff drinks, firm friendships and just enough sunshine and warmth to necessitate something big, tall and refreshing! Hamilton is home to some of the best patios you can find, and it's time to start exploring them, one app platter at a time!

shopping has never been so easy

Shop Local

Shopping local has never been easier or more fruitful than it is right now, especially if you’re looking for an easy way to buy fruit! We’ve got that, and we’ve got everything else too. From textiles, fashion, home and garden, decor, art and art supplies to dog bones and garden gnomes, you name it, we’ve got it. It’s all here, and it’s all Hamilton!

Concession Street BIA

Sidewalk Sounds

In a perfect world we would have loved nothing more than to host our summer music series as we have in past years…but in these extraordinary times, we are making the best of the new reality.

Stream Weaver

If we’re being honest, our least favourite part about being in public is having to put on pants. Yes, we know it’s important to socialize, get active, learn a new skill, etc, but, again, pants! Thankfully we no longer need despair, and neither do you, because with live streaming these things have never been more simple or pants free. Livin’ the dream, my friends, is as easy as clickin’ the stream!
