About Supercrawl

A driven team of Hamilton artists and community builders founded Supercrawl in 2009 out of a desire to expand on the promise of James Street North’s monthly Art Crawl. Showcasing great music alongside an entire street of cultural experiences — a diverse and dynamic lineup of music, art, fashion, performance, talks, crafts, food and fun (local, regional national and international) — the festival has captured the imagination of culture lovers far beyond the city. 

Audiences have enthusiastically embraced Supercrawl’s creative ambitions. Over the festival’s first 10 years, the event has gone from a one-day celebration on a single city block to a weekend-long experience covering two kilometers of city streets, with attendance growing steadily from 3,000 to 250,000 in that time. Supercrawl 2018 resulted in an economic impact of $16.9 million (calculated using the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Sport's Tourism Regional Economic Impact Model). More importantly, festival audiences left with renewed conviction of the power of the arts and convinced of the city’s cultural vitality.

In 2018, Supercrawl expanded the festival’s physical footprint (encompassing 18 city blocks) as well as its programming and production ambitions, and will build upon that foundation yet again in 2019.
