Fireworks & Illumination Schedule
Niagara Falls Fireworks
Witness the spectacle of Niagara Falls fireworks! The Falls Fireworks is the longest running firework display in Canada, and its longevity speaks to its timeless appeal—and our hotel is located a mere 12 minute walk away from the action!
Seeing fireworks explode over the Falls is an unforgettable experience. The Niagara Falls fireworks run every night in the summer months, as well as during the Winter Festival of Lights and other select annual events (however this year due to the pandemic, the Niagara Falls fireworks are cancelled).
Niagara Falls Fireworks: What You Need to Know
Where to View
Launched from between the American and Canadian Falls in the Niagara Gorge, the fireworks are best enjoyed from the vantage of Queen Victoria Park. You can spread out a blanket on the sprawling grassy area or stand at the edge of the water at the Journey Behind the Falls attraction. You can also view them while dining on the patio of the Queen Victoria Place Restaurant. Be sure to book a reservation, however, since tables can be difficult to find at showtime.
How to Get There
Depending on where you're coming from, you can drive, take public transit or walk to the Niagara Falls fireworks. The physical address of the fireworks is 6660 Niagara Pkwy, Niagara Falls, ON L2G 3N4.
To get to the fireworks display via public transit, you can take WEGO, which runs right to the Table Rock Centre. (WEGO access included with your Wonder Pass or Adventure Pass). The Falls Incline Railway will also deliver you directly to the fireworks area.
Where to Park
If you're driving to the display, the best parking for the Niagara Falls Fireworks is at the Falls Parking, located across from the Table Rock Centre, or the Queen Victoria Place Restaurant.
When Are The Niagara Falls Fireworks Cancelled?
The Niagara Falls Fireworks will often run in the rain, but high winds that could blow the fireworks off course could result in cancellation. To check if the fireworks are cancelled, check Niagara Parks Facebook or Twitter, ask a Niagara Parks staff member, or call 1-877-642-7275. An automated message will tell you if the show has been cancelled.
What Costs Can I Expect?
The Niagara Falls Fireworks are absolutely free. However, if you'd like an even more exceptional viewing experience, you can opt in for the Night Lights event at Journey Behind the Falls. This will give you exclusive lower deck access so you can watch the display, unencumbered.

Niagara Falls Illumination
During the Winter Festival of Lights, be sure to check out the lights on Niagara Falls, which are happening nightly from 4:30pm to 2am. NEW this year, is the "Inspired by Nature" Illumination Display.
This new illumination display features colour palettes and movements inspired by nature, including the sunrise, aurora borealis, rainbow and sunset. The mighty American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls come alive every evening with this tribute to the natural beauty all around us.
As of November 14, 2020, the “Inspired by Nature” display will become part of the regular nightly illumination of the Falls, with the five-minute lighting display playing through three times on the half hour, beginning at 7:30 each evening, with additional displays at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30pm.
