A Final Summer Festival – The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic

Looking for a final summer outing for the festival season?  This festival combines the best of summer in Hamilton – great music and local, fresh food.  Hosted at Christie Lake Conservation Area (one of my favourite hidden gems in Hamilton) on Saturday, August 27th, this festival is presented for the first time by Hamilton Conservation Authority and September Seventh Entertainment Limited.  There is also a great line-up of artists, including Hamilton native Daniel Lanois and Ray Lamontagne, Gord Downie and Emmylou Harris!  So why not end off the summer enjoying one of Hamilton’s great parks, great music and great food?

Check out the details HERE. (Tickets are $49.50/person)

Lanois, who grew up in Hamilton said, "I'm going public for my love of Ontario tomatoes in August. I grew up with so many wonderful local foods. Let's celebrate our local food growing heroes and congregate at Christie Lake, one of Ontario's best hidden secrets."

Event includes:

  • Music
  • Artisans
  • Local farmers market
