Summer might be drawing to a close, but art, music and food enthusiasts in Niagara Falls can bid farewell to the warmer weather at an upcoming event in a brand-new venue.

The Exchange Arts & Culture Hub (5943 Sylvia Place) is set to host the annual Niagara Falls Night of Art event on Sept. 21–the same day as its grand opening.

According to the city, the new 10,000-square-foot facility will officially open its doors for “an evening of art installations, live music, performances, food & drinks and more.” 

The event, which has historically been held at the Niagara Falls History Museum, will also offer attendees guided tours of the venue. The new space features a market hall, artist and woodworking studios, a gallery and a cafe. 

The event will include over 40 artisans, makers and vendors. 

“It’s truly an exciting time for the Niagara Falls arts and culture community,” said Clark Bernat, senior manager of culture, in a statement. 

“After much anticipation, we’re pleased to open the doors of the city’s new culture hub and welcome residents to explore the space at Night of Art. We’re looking to build on last year’s record turnout and have an exciting lineup of activations and performances planned. It’s going to be a special evening.”   

According to the city, guests can expect 14 installations by artists such as Lindsay-Ann Chilcott, Emily Andrews, Dillon Douglas and others. There will also be performances by Omega Crew 2.0, Paradisaea Circus, Eve Atoms, Salsa Dancing Niagara, and more. Attendees can also enjoy a live mural painting by artist Miguel Albino and a live wheat paste installation by artist Dan Bergeron.

As far as music goes, the event will feature performances by Tiny Cat, The Natrolites, JIN and The Woodshed Orchestra. 

Food vendors on site will include 905 Hotdog Pound, Beavertails Niagara, Jamaican Patty Shack, Raw Roots, Moksha Indian Food and more. There will also be craft beer and wine available.

The event is free to attend.
