About Niagara Falls Events

Events in Niagara Falls run throughout the year, attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists. It’s best to experience the Falls at different times throughout the year – each season offers something unique and memorable. The Niagara region compliments popular Fallsview attractions in the area with a wide array of events every month, so no stay in Niagara Falls is the exact same. From dazzling firework shows to the illumination of the falls to the winter festival of lights – there is never a shortage of events in Niagara Falls to keep you entertained and looking forward to your next visit! The Fallsview Casino Resort across the street from the Holiday Inn hosts various shows and concerts all year long.  Or try something truly magical at The Greg Frewin Theatre; also host to the Niagara’s first ever Elvis Festival in 2017.  Hornblower Niagara Cruises start their season the earliest ever this year on April 1st.

What ever season you decide to visit there is always plenty to do and see.
