This event is meant to educate the visitors about Nikola Tesla, and the incredible history made possible, thanks to Nikola Tesla and the 5 Johns. Guests are encouraged to attend the festival and learn the incredible history about the city of Hamilton, “The Electric City”. Yes that is correct, it predates “The Steel City.” Hamilton deserves this title because it was the 1st major city in Canada to have hydro.
The setting will be the same as that of the 2016 -TEF, with the exception that it will be twice the size. Come an enjoy a walk along the Waterfront Trail, and learn about the future Public Art that will be dedicated to “Hamilton, The Electric City, Nikola Tesla & the 5 Johns.”
