Embrace the chill and discover Niagara Falls' diverse offerings once the snow hits!
Niagara Falls is always in season. While the city is known for its vibrancy in the warmer months, the great natural wonder and region transform into a frozen landscape unlike any other. Ice buildups create the illusion of frozen falls with icicles framing the bordering edges and a frozen mist blanketing surrounding trees, truly creating a winter wonderland! Based on Niagara Parks' records, the Falls froze in 1848 due to sub-zero temperatures and an accumulation of ice glaciers stopping the flow of water. Since then the Falls have never frozen over!
See the Falls in a whole new light during the nightly illumination. With different colours dancing off the ice formations, you'll be mesmerized by the stunning icy façade.
The annual OPG Winter Festival of Lights has been extended to 101 nights, so you can enjoy the winter wonderland throughout the winter season from November 13, 2021 all the way to Family Day on February 21, 2022. The NEW Niagara Falls Music Live celebration showcases 75+ live music performances throughout the city from December 27, 2021 to January 1, 2022, including 13+ New Year's Eve performances.
