Hamilton Winterfest 2021!

Hamilton Winterfest 2021 kicks off on January 29th, bringing more than 50 virtual events to be enjoyed from the comforts of Hamiltonian homes. 

For more than 40 years Hamilton Winterfest has brought together a diverse mix of community producers to create a wide-range of events across the city keeping Hamiltonians active during the coldest month of year. This year is like no other, with a quick shift to all online programming Winterfest will be delighting Hamiltonian’s in a wide array of virtual experiences. From the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hamilton Fringe Festival, to the Hamilton Public Library, Soupfest and Factory Media Arts Centre – Winterfest gives Hamiltonians a reason to stay home. 

NEW TO THE FESTIVAL IN 2021 

Winterfest 360 Park Tour 
Bringing Winterfest to you, this year’s hub is happening in 360! Set on the stunning grounds of one of Hamilton’s finest heritage sites, Auchmar Estates, we’ll take you on a series of 360 drone tours of the Winterfest Hub including:

Inspired by Icebergs Massive inflatable installations inspired by Lawren Harris’ Icebergs 
Signature Concerts Illitry, Clerel and Monowhales  
DRIFT, Moonshaker & FLOCK Video art pieces inspired by the winter season 
Arctic Foxes Larger than life inflatable foxes bounding into the snow 

DRIFT 
Animating the massive installation of icebergs a team of local artists have created a 25 minutes video and sound experience entitled DRIFT. Sponsored by the Hamilton Oshawa Port Authority, Hamilton Video and Sound and SONY – this is the second year Winterfest has commissioned a massive new work by local artsits. 

Inspired by Icebergs 
Each year the festival commissions a new piece of public art. This year we worked with local designer Tanis MacArthur to create Inspired by Icebergs. Inspired by the works of Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris, MacArthur has created 4 massive inflatable icebergs that become the canvas for the Winterfest Hub. Walk through the ice tunnel and enjoy a series of projection art pieces and concert streams. Each year the Winterfest inflatable sculpture is sponsored by Fabricland. 

Signature Concerts 
In partnership with Collective Arts, Marz Homes, Ontario Lottery and Gaming, and Sound Box Productions, Winterfest will premier three recorded concerts with incredible talent from Hamilton, Montreal and Toronto. The line-up includes Illitry, Clerel and Monowhales. 

Frost Bites 
Each year the amazing team at the Hamilton Fringe Festival presents FROST BITES – a site specific festival of short theatrical works. Winterfest is proud to support this stellar element of the festival that includes online and downloadable take-it-with-you audio productions. 

Art Gallery of Hamilton 
Thanks to the Incite Foundation for the Arts, the Art Gallery of Hamilton will be creating a series of online content ranging from art classes to movie screenings. 

Tiny Escritoire Concerts 
Working with the City of Hamilton Museums the festival will present four lunch-time online concerts, each featuring a local musician and one of the City’s stunning facilities. Featured facilities will include: Auchmar, Griffin House, Whitehearn and the Museum of Steam and Technology.
