Fairs & Festivals

The City of Hamilton offers 3 fairs throughout the fair season in Binbrook, Ancaster and Rockton, as well as the Winona Peach Festival and the Dundas Cactus Festival.

Each offers its own unique flavour to the fair season and is a great opportunity to experience the roots of Hamilton both in the rural and urban communities, as well as celebrating its diversity.
