We’re here at the final weekend of July, with August just around the corner, coming at us on Tuesday. We hope your summer continues to be excellent, that you’re getting to do all the summertime things you’d hoped you would, and going to all the summertime places you possibly can. Whether that’s north to enjoy cottages, lakes, bonfires and the great outdoors, or it’s here in The Hammer with patios, festivals, live music, galleries, and other city destinations, we hope it’s been a blast for you and yours so far.
Once August rolls around, sometimes we’re kind of caught unaware. As Canadians, with a short summer season, we try to pack A LOT into those first few weeks of summery, hot, and sunny weather. So by the time we get to the second half of the summer, we might be tapped out for ideas as to what to do. Once you’ve checked off your summer to-do list, what’s left? Plenty, as it turns out!
Tourism Hamilton has a sweet, sweet list of the 10 Must-Attend August Events in Hamilton 2017 with something for everyone, and we are pretty sure that’s not just an exaggeration! Find information about everything from the Brott Music Festival, to the Quilt of Belonging, to the beloved Dundas Cactus Festival. So much to do!
You can get a jump on the August plans with Tourism Hamilton’s guide to what’s on this weekend as well, and again, there’s a lot of variety! Hamilton, you’re just so awesome.
Looking for music? Like FREE music? The Inlet has a seriously good roundup of the Best Free Music Series to See Before Summer Ends and it is jampacked with great options to suit practically every taste.
For another fun idea, check out Pop Up Hamilton for their next big event. You’re going to want to know that August means Luau in Hamilton, which sounds pretty great. Ticket information and more details on the Pop Up Hamilton website.
So now that we’ve covered nearly everything there is to do in #HamOnt this summer, there’s much less chance that we’ll all just be sitting around wondering where the fun is, right? Get out there, friends! The city awaits!
August is going to fly by, as it always does, and before we know it, we’re talking about those S words: September and school. But for now, enjoy all the Hamilton area has to offer, pack in as much as you can, and if you find out about something we’ve missed, let us know!
Have a great weekend, see you back here Tuesday.
