The 39th annual Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Winter Festival of Lights, Canada’s largest FREE outdoor light festival, is extending its duration to illuminate Niagara Falls for 101 nights from November 13, 2021 until February 21, 2022. With over 3 million lights and 75+ spectacular displays (8 new displays for 2021) providing colorful visuals, Niagara Falls will be transformed into a twinkling winter wonderland along the Niagara Parkway, Dufferin Islands and across the tourism districts. Visitors to this popular annual festival can bundle up and walk or drive through the Festival route to explore the outdoor, socially distanced, self-guided experience.  

Presented in two parts:

HOLIDAY November 13, 2021 – January 9, 2022
