Friends, there are two glorious sunny days ahead of us making this a perfect weekend to get out and explore our local communities. Maybe you want to splash around in a pool, tour some street art, eat some food – whatever you have planned, have a happy and fun weekend!


Hot Dang! The Ancaster Rib and Craft Beer Festival is back for 2019 and they’re bringing the best BBQ in Canada to the Ancaster Fairgrounds this weekend (July 12th – 14th). Check out the Craft Beer & Summer Cocktail Market featuring some of the best brewers in Ontario. You’re in for a weekend full of food, fun, and entertainment.

Looking for a sweet treat to cool you down? Head to The Purple Pony, also known as the cutest ice cream shop in Ancaster.


It’s a quiet weekend in Burlington, but you can still find something to do in this beautiful city. There are weekend events taking place at the Royal Botanical Gardens, public pools are open for kiddos to splash around in, kayaks and paddle boards are available to rent if you want to try your hand at watersports on the beachfront, and there are many fantastic restaurants, coffee shops and ice cream spots to satisfy taste buds.


Hamilton’s premier craft beer & cider festival returns to Pier 4 Park for a sixth season this weekend. BECAUSE BEER offers a unique opportunity to sample hundreds of craft beers and ciders from dozens of craft beer and cider makers, interact with brewers, check out the awards ceremony for the Because Beer Homebrew Competition, and take part in exclusive VIP experiences. Festival-goers will also enjoy a great music stage as well as delicious fare served up by specialty food vendors. And all in the scenic Hamilton Bayfront location that will make you feel like you’ve escaped to the cottage.

Art in public places not only beautifies the scenery, it also supports local artists. Learn more during the Concrete Canvas multi-day mural festival that is taking place July 12-14th throughout the lower city of Hamilton. Concrete Canvas is a multi-day visual arts festival where local and internationally acclaimed artists alike create murals across Hamilton in an effort to elevate the visual landscape of the city, while simultaneously inspiring a new generation of artists.
