Check out Frost Bites in Hamilton

Feb 12, 2016

A new festival is happening near our Hamilton apartments that you will not want to miss. Learn more about the winter festival that is coming to town in today’s post from the Timbercreek Communities blog team.

What is Frost Bites?

Frost Bites is a site-specific winter theatre festival showcasing the city’s hottest local artists. This includes filmmakers, dancers, actors, playwrights and choreographers, just to name a few. In total, there are seven artistic companies that are contributing to make the festival possible.

How it works

Each of the seven participating companies has been assigned a specific colour. Upon TC Hamilton FrostBitesarriving at Frost Bites, festival goers will choose a colour-coded flag. There are only as many flags as there are seats for that company’s show. Five minutes before the show starts, guests from each colour will be guided to the place that their show is being held. Shows will repeat multiple times over the course of the evening, meaning you can see more than one amazing production.
