The Niagara Icewine Festival is pulling out all the stops to wow wine and food lovers with an all-new feast for the senses this January. Cool As Ice is an immersive celebration showcasing Ontario’s signature flavors through VQA Icewines, cocktails and mocktails, and farm-to-table fare, set within one of Niagara Falls’ most buzzed-about new attractions, the Niagara Parks Power Station.

In addition to exciting wine and culinary offerings, tickets to January 14th‘s Cool As Ice event includes exclusive access to the Niagara Parks Power Station’s immersive exhibits and The Tunnel, which offers a unique perspective and unparalleled views of Niagara Falls from 180-feet below ground. Cool As Ice will also feature live performance artists and stunning photo backdrops set to a music soundtrack sure to inspire time on the event’s dance floor.

VQA Icewine is more than a sweet treat. Guests will explore how Icewine enhances spicy, savoury and sweet dishes at stations throughout the event. (CNW Group/Niagara Grape & Wine Festival)

According to Niagara Grape & Wine Executive Director Dorian Anderson, “After having to press pause on Icewine festivities for a few years, we wanted to come back in a huge way for 2023 with a jaw-dropping new venue and format for the Icewine Gala. The Niagara Parks Power Station really lends itself to the type of creative expression and exploration that Icewine is all about.”

“We are pleased to partner with the Niagara Icewine Festival to offer this unforgettable evening experience at our newest must-see attraction, the Niagara Parks Power Station. The Niagara Icewine Festival is a signature experience for the destination, and we look forward to the new Cool As Ice event showcasing the incredible Icewines and culinary offerings of Niagara in a new and exciting format, in a truly one-of-a-kind venue.”, said April Jeffs, Chair of Niagara Parks.
