Attention lovers of poutine, BBQ, dessert and all kinds of mouthwatering treats! Ottawa Street North will be a culinary street heaven this Saturday, May 13.

Marking 10 years of festivities, Sew Hungry, Hamilton’s annual restaurant and food truck rally, is returning from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Come with an empty stomach — coconut wasabi chicken soft taco, anyone? — and get ready to enjoy live roots fusion, country, rock, soul and more music while checking out the 33 food trucks, three outdoor beer gardens, markets, as well as more than 100 restaurants and shops along Ottawa Street North.

Sew Hungry and the Putman Family YWCA will be hosting a sidewalk sale featuring women and non-binary vendors from YWCA Hamilton programs and the community.

There will be free activities throughout the day, such as:

  • Miss T the Bubble Queen will perform bubble tricks at the activity zone between Main and Dunsmure from noon to 5:30.
  • HamOnt Yoga will have free classes, suitable for beginners, at noon and 5 p.m. between Main and Dunsmere, right beside the HPL Bookmobile. Non-perishable food or cash donations are welcome for the Community Fridges HamOnt, a volunteer-run resource that provides free food to people in need.  You may bring a non-perishable, cash donation or book your spot online to pay virtually. All funds will stock the fridge on Monday, May 15.

Ottawa Street North will be closed from Barton Street to Main Street from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the Sew Hungry event, according to the City of Hamilton. 

Costco, Telus and YWCA are sponsoring the non-profit event hosted by the Ottawa Street BIA.
