Canada’s largest outdoor light festival returning to Niagara Falls

It’s Canada’s largest and longest-running free outdoor light festival and it’s returning next month to Niagara Falls.
The Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights will light up the chilly night sky for its 41st year on Nov. 18 and will run until Jan. 7, 2024.
With over three million lights and more than 75 stunning displays, Niagara Falls become that fairy tale world along the Niagara Parkway, Dufferin Islands, and across the tourist districts.
“The Winter Festival of Lights holds a special place in the hearts of those that visit year after year,” said Janice Thomson, President & CEO of Niagara Falls Tourism.
“Niagara Falls is delighted to welcome everyone back and cherish the opportunity to help all visitors make more lasting memories, as they explore the festival displays and activities.”
Visitors to this popular annual event can bundle up and walk or drive through the festival route to explore the outdoor, self-guided experience, then warm up indoors with the Hot Chocolate Trail at over 17 participating hosts throughout the festival.
From those humble beginnings in 1982, the festival was originally conceived to attract winter visitors to enjoy the icy beauty of the Falls and explore engaging outdoor displays.
“Winter is one of the most spectacular times of the year to experience Niagara Falls and the Winter Festival of Lights gives yet another reason to visit in the coming months,” said David Adames, CEO of Niagara Parks Commission.
“Niagara Parks is proud to be a founding partner of this beloved annual tradition that has been a staple of the destination for over 40 years. We look forward to visitors exploring the many new and returning illumination installations that will bring Niagara Parks to life during this year’s Winter Festival of Lights.”
