Local celebrities and politicians come out to serve soup and help with the event. There is a Toonie Auction and live entertainment.

The Soup is made to stir-up big support for Living Rock’s Soupfest 13. FirstOntario Credit Union was a Title Sponsor for the event.
This event is the major annual fundraiser for Living Rock Ministries, a non‐profit youth resource center in Hamilton. Located downtown, Living Rock has been supporting at‐risk and street‐involved youth since 1985. The funds raised through Soupfest are directed to programs, services and resources to youth in need. In 2013 there were more than 29,000 youth visits to the Rock.
