James Street Art Crawl

Gems of Hamilton – James Street Art Crawl

This is a really great little Hamilton tradition. On the second Friday of every month, James Street North turns into an amazing art crawl that celebrates art in every form. The street becomes a self-guided gallery tour of artistic expression from artists of all mediums. A great place to learn, support the arts, get inspired or just spend time browsing with the one you love.

  From music and painting to contemporary dance and sculptures, there is a little-bit-of-a-lot at this crawl. If you love experiencing culture and diversity in art and food, this eight-year long tradition will have you marking every second Friday of every month, in your calendar.

  As if this weren’t enough, once a year, a driven team of Hamilton artists and community builders hold a ‘Super Crawl’ (inspired by its smaller counterpart). This event was born in 2009 and has since turned into a weekend-long event. Spanning over a dozen blocks, with the traffic closed off to the street, the Super Crawl has quickly become an event that the entire city can enjoy. Big names in music, art exhibits on the street, food trucks for every appetite…this family event is one not to be missed.

Just another reason to call Hamilton home!
