The Hamilton East Community Trust Started running the Hamilton East Heritage Festival after the Hamilton East Business Association handed over the Jazz Food and Wine Festival over to the Trust in 2008.

The Trust realised that to have a real point of difference we needed to be celebrating our hero proposition, which is our rich heritage. Going forward the Trust has rebranded the Heritage Festival to our new event for 2019 The Hamilton East Community Festival

Refocussing the festival into a fun family orientated day out which showcased the areas rich history, proved to be an outstanding success. With a mix of entertainment, vintage cars, pony rides and market stalls, there was something for everyone, even penny farthing races.

Steele Park is the perfect location for the event, through location and historical significance. The Trust will continue to arrange this festival on a bi-annual basis and look forward to another great event in February 2019.

Please find us on Facebook as there are forms and information with regards to stalls and displays and all manner of information

This years Heritage Festival will be on Steele Park, Sunday 24th February 10.00am - 3.00pm.

Great markets, static displays of vintage machinery, Alf's Imperial Army, family area, and live entertainment, this promises to be a fantastic celebration of the rich history of Hamilton City, and a great free fun day out
