A driven team of Hamilton artists and community builders founded Supercrawl in 2009. Launched out of a desire to expand on the promise of James Street North’s monthly Art Crawl, the festival showcases great music alongside an entire street of art, fashion, performance, talks, crafts, food and fun (local, regional, national and international). In doing so, it has captured the imagination of culture lovers far beyond the city.
Supercrawl has gone from a one-day celebration on a single block to a weekend-long experience fanning out over more than a dozen. Since 2009, Supercrawl attendance has grown from 3,000 to an average of 130,000 annually. In 2015, organizers broadened the festival’s physical footprint (covering 16 city blocks) and its programming/production ambitions.
In 2016, Supercrawl expanded the festival’s physical footprint (covering 16 city blocks) as well as its programming and production ambitions, and will build upon that foundation yet again in 2017.
Thank you for your interest in becoming (or returning as) a Supercrawl volunteer. Energetic volunteers make Supercrawl possible and are a vital part of the festival’s ongoing success.
