Soupfest 2022

Event Ended

Soupfest is about coming together to empower youth by creating a fun, local, and delicious experience.

When: throughout Winterfest from Feb3, 2022- February 21, 2022

Where: At local participating restaurants from Hamilton and surrounding Cities.

Why: Soupfest is the major annual fundraiser for Living Rock Youth Centre, a local non-profit in Hamilton. Living Rock has been supporting vulnerable youth since 1985. The funds raised through Soupfest are directed to programs and resources offered to support youth in need. Living Rock offers a place of belonging, safety, and a bridge to the community while supporting youth to develop a personal vision for their lives.

We find ourselves again in the peek of another COVID wave. The pandemic has been incredibly difficult for the restaurant industry and we would like inspire our community to support local through offering Soupfest, once again this year. Each participating restaurant will offer a signature competing soup during their hours of operation. A percentage of each soup will support Living Rock and the balance will support our local restaurants. Each restaurant decides what amount that they will donate and that amount can be built into the price of the soup. Restaurants need our support too!

Each restaurant will have a signature soup offering whether in be by the bowl, a litre or both. All details of what restaurants are participating can be found at By February 1st, 2022 all details of what soups are being offered, locations and times will be posted on our website.
We can not anticipate the impact COVID will have on restaurant operations however this event can run with sit in or take out dining. For more information, please call 905-528- ROCK (7625), or visit, or by email:
