The Festival of Friends is Hamilton's long-running, legendary summer festival with two live music stages featuring well-known Canadian acts, plus art, crafts, and food trucks in Gage Park. Admission to the festival is free to everyone. This year's musical acts include American country star Tanya Tucker headlining a country-themed Saturday, with opening act Ben and Noel Haggard, performing the songs of their late father, country legend Merle Haggard. Friday will be rock-oriented, with Hamilton-based hitmakers the Trews headlining and Juno-nominated rockers Bleeker opening. Sunday night will feature an '80s feel with Loverboy headlining, with Burlington synth-pop band the Spoons opening.
