We run on teamwork, camaraderie, effort, support, and generous services. Strangewaves couldn't exist without the hours of volunteer work put in by organizers and volunteers. If you would like to attend the festival and help things run smoothly in exchange for a few hours of your time, we would love to have you! Your help is immensely appreciated. Apply to our survey and we will reach out to you.

We are looking for vendors who would like to set up at the festival, from 11-7pm Saturday July 20 and 11-4pm Sunday July 21. For more information, see our application form.


Strangewaves currently does not receive government funding, nor corporate sponsorship, therefore could not exist without the help of some wonderful people in the greater Hamilton community. This year we are hoping to partner with community members and small business owners wanting to support local arts and culture. Sponsor donations help maintain the foundational costs and allow us to add the bells and whistles needed to keep the festival fresh and exciting year after year. Get in touch with us to receive one of our sponsorship information kits.
