I was speaking with one of the organizers and their attendance estimate was 3,000!

According to the marketing and communications manager for Open Streets Hamilton, the police reported attendance of close to 5,000 people.

Edit - in this comment, I had previously expressed astonishment that the organizers should have to cover the cost of the Open Streets Hamilton event. Thankfully, I was incorrect about that.

I just received an email from Peter Topalovic, project manager, transportation demand management, in the public works department in which he affirmed that the costs of the event were covered by Smart Commute Hamilton, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, the Public Works Department and Public Health, which were all part of the organizing committee in addition to the NGOs and community associations. The $10,000 street closure cost was covered by a grant from the City.
