Welcome to Happening Hamilton! We are a group of both Hamilton natives and others more recently settled in Steeltown, and have started this blog to get the word out about events going on in Hamilton. Our only credentials are that we live in this city, and happen to love it. We want to make it better, and help connect people who might not otherwise find out about all the great things Hamilton has to offer.
We are interested in a whole range of cultural events, ranging from musical, artistic, literary and film events, to intriguing lectures, local food events, or really anything else that is creative or challenging or experimental in some way. We want to promote free/cheap events, accessible to everyone, and events hosted at independent venues that promote urban exploration and get people out into Hamilton. We would like to capture the unique flavour of Hamilton, demonstrating the diversity and distinctive character of our city.
If you have an event you would like us to post (or are interested in becoming a contributor), let us know, otherwise bookmark our blog and use it to keep up with all the great things happening in Hamilton.
For Questions and Inquiries contact us here.
If you love Hamilton as much as we do and want to contribute, please send us an email at email@example.com We are always looking for more writers, photographers and Hamilton Enthusiasts.
Obvious statement: I love Hamilton. There is always something to do and amazing people to meet. I promise our updates here will help you explore this incredible city, whatever your interests may be.

My mum always told me “don’t start your day in a tooth-rotting way!”
I made Hamilton my home in 2006 and I can’t get enough of it. I volunteer with my local neighbourhood association, OPIRG McMaster, and I also write for the local blog http://www.raisethehammer.org/. Besides that, I co-host a weekly indie-pop radio show on CFMU 93.3FM with my lovely partner Megan. Reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @myboyriotgirl.
