A celebration of newcomers in our city, our future together, and the richly diverse and inclusive Hamilton that we are. Newcomer Day returns to full in-person programming for the first time since 2019!
Newcomer Day is an annual event held in May that welcomes newcomers to Hamilton, helps them understand and access a wide range of services, and celebrates their contributions to the city.
The event features a number of activities including a formal stage program, a citizenship ceremony for new Canadians, a Newcomer Marketplace, and an Information Fair. It is held outside of City Hall in the courtyard and is open to the public interested in entertainment, buying and supporting local business and learning about immigration in the City of Hamilton.
All Hamiltonians are invited to join in welcoming newcomers in Hamilton with activities and entertainment at this showcase of our city’s diverse communities.
