The 2021/2022 Winter Festival of Lights will be presented in two parts and will feature 28 new illumination displays. Displays November 13-January 9 will feature popular 3D animals and holiday themed displays including giant gingerbread house, a Polar Bear standing 20 feet tall and 8 new displays.

From January 10-February 21, love themed displays will take centre stage, 3D animals from Dufferin Islands will pop-up magically in other locations, and holiday themed installations will be replaced with new illuminations.

The magic of the festival can be enjoyed throughout the tourist district either on foot or from the comfort of your car.  Key areas to experience are a short distance from the hotels on Falls Avenue Resort.

Niagara Parkway

Signature illumination displays can be viewed starting from the bottom of Clifton Hill and travelling an 8km stretch.  Along the scenic drive you will encounter the popular Canadian Mountie display, Noah’s Ark, brilliant heralding Angels, and light wrapped trees that shine in the dark.

Dufferin IslandsWinter Festival of Lights

This 10-acre series of islands and walkways is a popular picnic area in warmer months, but in winter it shines as host of some of the Festival’s most beloved displays.  The nature theme features Canadian wildlife in brilliant light.  From a life size moose, to “Harvest Moon” featuring animated ducks, and a show stopping Woolly Mammoth.

Queen Victoria Park

The beautiful park that sits opposite Niagara Falls is home to iconic displays. Shimmering blue and white lights of the Zimmerman Fountain welcome guests to Queen Victoria Park, a colourful collection of spiral trees sits at the base of Murray Hill, and old growth trees throughout the park are dripping in light to resemble Spanish Moss trees and light up walking paths.
