It’s one of the hottest events of the year. Each fall Supercrawl takes over Hamilton’s James Street North in a celebration of arts, music, fashion, food and much more. Here’s 4 reasons why you’ll want to make the trip to Hamilton for this year’s Supercrawl.
James Street North has a host of local clothing shops that specialize in the unique and the one of a kind. Stop in at White Elephant, an independent boutique specializing in Canadian-made clothing, independent jewelry designers, and thoughtful gift items – also boasting one of the prettiest storefronts around!
The Food & Drink
Whether you’re craving southern style comfort food, or want to power up with a healthy salad bowl, the options are endless on James Street North. Don’t miss Rudy’s Ice Pops, Chocolat on James, The Salt Lick Smokehouse and Lake Road Restaurant, then check out Arkell’s frontman Max Kerman’s favourite dining spots. If you are craving a cold beer, the local brewing company Collective Arts Brewing is on the menu at most restaurants, and is a must try.
Save up your appetite, because this is the ultimate food crawl.
