  • Engage with art

    Our region hearts the arts! Art Gallery of Hamilton is Canada’s third-largest public art gallery, and is home to over 9,500 works of art. Don’t miss Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant in Brantford, with its beautiful gardens and rotating exhibitions, and the Art Gallery of Burlington, home to the largest collection of Canadian contemporary ceramic art in Canada. Other public art museums worth a visit are Oakville Galleries in Oakville, FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton, and the McMaster Museum of Art in Hamilton.

  • Step inside studios

    Go behind the scenes and meet an intriguing community of local artists at fall studio tours taking place in Hamilton Halton Brant. Studio tours offer a different way to cruise the day away and enjoy the region’s vibrant arts scene as well as the stunning autumn colours. You’ll find jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography and more at the Dundas Studio Tour and Brant Studio Tour in October and the Art in Action Burlington Studio Tour in November.

  • Experience Hamilton's live music scene
