The I Heart Hamilton Tour began in May 2011 with the concept of being a tourist in your own city. We’re all about getting to know our hometown better, challenging ourselves with new experiences, and encouraging others to do the same, wherever you are.

To mark our first anniversary, we made it our goal to set up a fundraiser concert to benefit a local organization. We have had the chance to really experience the sense of community in Hamilton throughout our Tour and we have a philosophy of making a difference in our community and giving back.

Music is integral to our Tour and through it, we have had the opportunity to meet local musicians who we feel really embody the sense of community in the City. We have teamed up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton, having been inspired by the work they do for both the children and their families, and by the sense of community in the organization’s mission. We believe the organization aligns with our values and is something that we would love to support.

Please join us for our first-ever live Playlist!
