Hamilton on Family Day - What's Open and Closed


Family Day in Hamilton falls on Monday, February 15, 2021. Family Day is not a national statutory holiday, but it is observed in Ontario as one.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some things that are typically open might be closed and there will be no major public events due to physical distancing restrictions.

Because Hamilton is currently in lockdown, social gatherings are prohibited and residents are asked to celebrate the long weekend with members of their own household exclusively. People who live alone and single-parent families are permitted to join one other household.
