It’s Your Festival is back at Hamilton’s Gage Park after a three-year hiatus.

The Hamilton Folk Arts Heritage Council announced on Friday that the 54th edition of the festival will make its return for the July 1st long weekend and include four entertainment stages; food, drink, and gift vendors; and family-related activities.

Organizers say this year’s event “promises to be bigger and better than ever before.”

One of the highlights of this year’s festival will be the live music performances, featuring a diverse lineup of talented artists from across Canada.

“Look out for our coming entertainment announcement before the festival,” the council says. “There will be something for everyone.”

“In addition to the musical performances, the festival will also include the annual Parade of Cultures, Just One Wish Kindness Awards, Canadian citizenship ceremony, and showcase a variety of cultural dances, including traditional Indigenous performances.”
