Last year’s first annual Mid Summer’s Dream festival ended up being one of my favourite events of the year, and by far the most unique. This year’s MSD fest promises to be even bigger and better than the last. To get an idea what you’re in for, take a look at my colourful post from last summer. I Heart Hamilton is happy to be a supporter of this year’s event!
Part colour festival, part peace pow wow, part food drive, there will be tons of live music, food trucks, and more. Come out and enjoy a summer day in one of the city’s most beautiful parks.

Gage Park’s historic bandshell is a landmark to Hamilton. The vibrant blue stage is just perfect for this festival and it sounds amazing up there. Check out my footage of Hachey the MouthPEACE performing at last year’s fest.
This year’s lineup is an eclectic mix and filled with even more local talent. Stay tuned for my interviews with a couple of the performers as we get closer to the festival.
Of course, I can’t wait to get doused in all the colours again! Check out a video I took of one of the colour throws at last year’s Mid Summer’s Dream.
