The most enchanting of Niagara Falls attractions, the annual Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights is back to continue the tradition of holiday lights and family fun! What better way to light up the end of the year than by enjoying Canada’s largest FREE outdoor light festival?

This bright and cheery festival is on now, featuring over three million lights and dazzling 3D displays along Dufferin Islands, the Niagara Parkway, and across Niagara Falls. This year, the Festival will illuminate Niagara Falls for 101 nights, almost doubling the amount of time you can discover the winter magic of twinkling lights.

With over 75 spectacular displays providing colourful visuals, including returning festival favourites like larger-than-life 3D animals, giant gingerbread house, and illuminated trees, plus new displays such as a gingerbread family, narwhal, candy canes, and more, Niagara Falls has transformed into a twinkling winter wonderland.

This year’s OPG Winter Festival of Lights is delighted to introduce family-friendly live entertainment every weekend and nightly during the holidays, featuring musicians, magicians, jugglers and more. Hosted at the Hilton Fallsview Hotel & Suites, the new indoor entertainment is the perfect opportunity to warm up and enjoy more family fun, in accordance with Public Health measures.
Surround yourself and loved ones with inspiring, bright displays of happiness, hope, and cheer. Friends and family can make new memories throughout the extended Festival season that runs until Family Day on February 21, 2022.

Come for the lights and to reconnect with family and friends, stay for the colourful illumination of the city’s famous waterfalls—a magical, not-to-be-missed viewing occasion for all, every night of the year.

Experience the spectacular light displays safely by walking along the wide-open park pathways, by driving along the route with your family, or by viewing from the warm comfort of Niagara Falls’ many wonderful restaurant and hotel windows.

Niagara Falls is a popular destination to create long-lasting memories, and winter is the perfect time to experience the beauty of the icy Falls and explore the engaging outdoor displays. With plenty to see and do for visitors, whether it’s your first or fifth time visiting, make it your winter tradition to bundle up, enjoy the fresh air, and add some sparkle to your holiday plans. Overnight getaways provide the perfect staycation to explore Niagara Falls by day and night!
