Regardless of the season, festivals and special events play a leading role in our Niagara. From food and wine festivals, live music and transformative theatre, to annual events and more, there’s an endless choice of options to create special moments to share with those who matter to you.

When summer is in the air in Niagara, tap your toes to jazz, rock, soul or more as many of our wineries offer intimate vineyard concerts or larger outdoor amphitheatres to catch some top Canadian musical stars under the stars. Or head to one of our larger venues for headline acts.

When the snow falls, don’t miss out on the exciting and unique festivals where you can raise a glass to our cool transformation from lush vineyards to a Winter Wonderland.

Whether it’s the Icewine Festival, the Winter Festival of Lights or the many unique events throughout Niagara, the Instagram-ready region has it all to create great moments and special memories.

Use our events navigation tool to find events in Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, St. Catharines, Niagara Benchlands and South Coast. You won’t be able to do it all, but you can have fun trying.

                              When summer is in the air in Niagara, music is in the vineyards and at the falls! Sunny days are best spent in the vines with a glass of Niagara’s finest, listing to music’s finest. Whether you tap your toes to jazz, rock, soul or more, many of our wineries offer intimate vineyard concerts or larger outdoor amphitheatres to catch some of Canada’s top musical stars under the stars. For those looking for a more traditional concert experience, Niagara’s Fallsview Casino Resort showcases over 300 internationally acclaimed acts each year.

                              No matter how large, small or peachy an occasion–we know how to celebrate. With several food, wine, craft beer, arts and family-focused festivals each year, you’ll never run out of things to do or experiences to be had in Niagara. Watch world-class theatre that exhilarates and moves you at the Shaw Festival Theatre or pay tribute to Niagara’s second most famous fruit with the annual Peach Festival, where you’re sure to have a sweet experience. Under a blanket of sparkling snow, our coolest affair–the annual Niagara Icewine Festival–warms up visitors far and wide with Canada’s world-famous icewine. Not to mention countless other food and wine festivals that pay tribute to the incredible bounty and terroir that our local roots bare. Even when one of the biggest nights of the year comes, Niagara invites you to celebrate with us. Be dazzled by our fireworks on the Niagara Falls every New Year’s Eve as we all kick off yet another year of sensational things (and events!) to come. Or better yet, enjoy nightly fireworks all summer long at Canada’s largest wine festival, the Niagara Grape & Wine Festival.
