Wine, beer, food and 54-40 coming to Lincoln park for Hospice Niagara fundraiser

Canadian rock legends 54-40 will share the stage with funk-soul band, The 99s, at this year's TASTE for Hospice Niagara fundraiser.

When the TASTE fundraiser for Hospice Niagara bounced back last year after a two-year absence, they saw a sold-out crowd of over 500 guests jam the Stonewall Estates winery in St. Catharines.

This year, they’re looking to expand as they holding the fundraiser at the Balls Falls Conservation Area (3292 Sixth Ave.) in Lincoln so that there’s plenty of legroom.

They’ll need the space as their musical line-up – legendary Canadian rockers 54-40 and one of the hottest funk soul bands, The 99s – are bound to have people up and dancing when the show comes to the park on September 7 from 5:30 to 10:30 pm.

54-40 are best known for their hit songs, I Go Blind, One Day In Your Life and One Gun.

“After an amazing sold-out 2022, we are back with an amazing lineup featuring the legendary 54-40 with special guests the GTA’s hottest funk-soul band The 99s,” said organizers.

“An amazing night of food, drink, celebrity chefs, and live music all at the beautiful Balls Falls Conservation Area. Grab your tickets as this is sure to sell out again this year. Help support such an important organization here in Niagara.”

While tickets are $175 apiece, the evening features unlimited food, beverages, and entertainment so it’s going to put the ‘fun’ into the fundraiser as they promise “award-winning wines, ciders, craft beer, local chefs’ creations, food trucks (and) live music.”

“As evening sets in, this intimate and picturesque countryside setting becomes the backdrop for some unique, acoustic sets by two Canadian bands rocking out under an open sky.”

Again, this sold out last year so tickets will be going fast. Get yours HERE.
