People of Hamilton promotes businesses, talent, events, and faces in this beautiful city! The blog was started in 2015 to meet cool people and promote Hamilton culture and business along the way. Since then, we have won a 2016 Maggie Award for Best Media Outlet, discovered some amazing food, music, and shops, and have accomplished the goal of highlighting some of Hamilton’s interesting individuals. People of Hamilton is about finding the secrets in a city that has long been overlooked. We want to change this, one person at a time.
