Winter Festival of Lights

Visit Canada’s foremost illumination festival, the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls, Canada – November 18th, 2017 to January 31st, 2018. Enjoy the Festival’s 8km illumination route nightly from 5:00PM to midnight. The lighting route travels along the Niagara Parkway through the Niagara Parks Queen Victoria Park, past the mighty Falls, into Dufferin Islands and surrounding tourist areas.
This winter the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights (WFOL), will be celebrating thirty-five years of lighting up Niagara Falls for the holidays! The up-coming Festival of Lights season will open on Saturday, November 18th and run through to January 31st, 2018. If you haven’t been to see the lights in recent years, put the WFOL on your to do list this winter because the Festival has evolved significantly in recent years. The WFOL Illumination Route was expanded from five to eight kilometres long with many new displays added along the way. In addition to new light displays, programming has also been expanded with new events and innovative light shows.
Featuring over two million lights, the Festival’s 8km long illumination route travels through the Niagara Parks, past the roaring Falls, into Dufferin Islands and surrounding tourist areas. To see all the Winter Festival of Lights displays, its best to hop in a car and tour the route, but don’t forget to make stops along the way to get a closer look or to take a selfie next to your favourite illuminated display. This winter the WFOL will sparkle brighter than ever with huge celebrations planned for the Festival’s 35th anniversary.
The Festival will also feature more events as part of its 35th Anniversary Season. Events and programming include WFOL Opening Ceremonies, Weekly Fireworks, Grandview Winter Marketplace, Deck the Falls Holiday Walking Tour, Santa’s Village, Sparkle Lighting Awards, Laser Light Shows, the New Years Eve Concert and the Niagara Falls Icewine Festival.
Make It Your Winter Tradition!
