This June, let’s rally in support of our local businesses.

What is the Hamilton Business Rally?

This June I’m inviting you to support local businesses and win prizes by participating in a series of 12 acts. Each act supports a local business and gives you a ballot for weekly and monthly draws for gift cards to local businesses.

To get involved follow along on Instagram at, @Hamilton_Business_Rally, to see what the weekly Acts are. Once the Acts are posted, we encourage you to get out and complete as many as you like, as many times as you want, and share it with @Hamilton_Business_Rally on Instagram. Each completed Act receives a ballot for weekly and monthly draws. Weekly we will be drawing for two $50 local business gift cards. At the end of the month, we will be drawing for two $100 local business gift cards. There will also be random Flash Draws where when you tag a friend or a business to participate, you’ll be entered to win a $25 local business gift card. Acts can be completed anytime before June 30th. Complete each act as many times as you want for additional entries.

Hi! My name is Krysta Boyer and I love local businesses.

My favourite restaurants, cafes and retail stores are local. Supporting local businesses has been a regular effort of mine, something I practice in my personal, volunteer and work-life. I wanted to do more to help out my local businesses while making it fun and engaging for others. The Hamilton Business Rally is a project I've been working on over the last two years. It is with the help from my Marketing team, Director Jugroop Gosal and Overdrive Design Limited that we are able to bring you the Hamilton Business Rally. We are excited for you to join us!
