Free Sweaters for Hamilton Day!

90 years ago, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce hosted Hamilton Day and showed our local spots some love during the depths of the Great Depression. It’s time to do it again. On Saturday, November 20, Hamilton Day returns to support small and local businesses in the wake of COVID-19. This will be a one-day event for all Hamiltonians to reignite community pride and inject much-needed dollars and support to businesses across the city.

To celebrate Hamilton Day in our own special way, we have designed a retro-inspired Downtown Hamilton sweatshirt. To get your hands on one of these limited-edition sweaters all you have to do is support small businesses! Shop, eat, drink, explore any of the participating businesses on Nov 20th to receive a scratch ticket with 1 in 5 chances of winning (while supplies last). Then trade in your winning ticket at the BIA office during office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30 – 4:30) for a sweater in your size.
