Supercrawl 2024 Call For Artists – Now Closed

Supercrawl is a free annual outdoor art and music festival held in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, showcasing a diverse and dynamic lineup of music, art, fashion, performance, talks, crafts, food and fun. In 2023, Supercrawl covered 22 city blocks and attracted more than 275,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. Organizers look forward to building upon that foundation at this fall’s festival — Supercrawl’s 16th anniversary — taking place September 13-15, 2024 on James Street North.

Calls for Artists for the 2024 edition of  Supercrawl are now closed. Thanks to all who applied.

Please do not contact organizers regarding the results of your application before they are communicated to you. When decisions are made, you will be contacted.

Only materials as part of the official application will be considered. Third-party petitions, social media polls, gimmicky marketing campaigns, cold calls and the like will not favourably impact your likelihood of having a successful application. To the contrary: Attempts to influence curation will be counterproductive.

Please do not telephone, text, direct message, or use social media comments for artist-related requests/communications. All official communications will be conducted via email only.

Call for Volunteers will open in June.

Details on the first-come, first served Supermarket program will be announced September 1.

Supercrawl was founded out of a desire to showcase the city’s cultural vibrancy and eclectic arts landscape, and remains dedicated to honouring, showcasing and celebrating all varieties of creative work. Supercrawl prioritizes curating a diverse and representative festival lineup. We recognize our responsibility to amplify voices that have traditionally been marginalized, both in our community and in society as a whole.

Supercrawl is committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility. We strive to create an environment in which all participants may flourish. We are committed to removing systemic barriers to access and opportunity, and welcome artistic proposals from all individuals, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, or economic status. We welcome submissions from artists of all backgrounds, including but not limited to Indigenous, Black, people of colour, 2SLGBTQIA+, women, people with disabilities, and members of equity-seeking communities.
