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 Nov. 13, 2021 until Feb. 21, 2022.

Niagara Falls is a popular winter drive-to getaway and the extended Festival provides an opportunity to experience the beauty of the icy Falls and explore the engaging outdoor displays with plenty to see and do for visitors who may wish to enjoy multiple visits.

The 2021-22 OPG Winter Festival of Lights will be presented in two parts:

Nov. 13, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022

The first half of the Festival features favorite 3D animal and holiday themed displays, including the popular Dufferin Islands loop within Niagara Parks. The 20 new displays introduced in 2020 will return, including the giant gingerbread house, 20-foot polar bear and fairy tale castle, plus eight new displays for 2021.

Jan. 10 – Feb. 21, 2022

The new second half of the Festival will showcase winter wonderland and love-themed displays. 3D animals from Dufferin Islands will magically appear in other parts of the tourism district and holiday themed displays will be replaced with new illuminations.

Two maps will be featured on the WFOL.com website in mid-October to showcase the change in displays during the Festival period.

New for the 2021 OPG Winter Festival of Lights is a partnership with the Hilton Hotel & Suites to provide family-friendly entertainment on weekends, following Public Health guidelines. This exciting indoor activation will allow guests to warm up along the Festival route and enjoy live music, magicians, story time and more. The event schedule will be posted on WFOL.com in mid-October.

With over three million lights and 75-plus spectacular displays 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.

“Niagara Falls has earned an outstanding reputation as a destination to create long-lasting memories and the OPG Winter Festival of Lights is one of the Signature Events the city is known for. The accommodations, attractions and restaurants look forward to welcoming new and returning visitors to the Festival, all within Public Health protocols,” said Janice Thomson, President & CEO of Niagara Falls Tourism.

“As a founding partner of the Winter Festival of Lights, we are excited to once again welcome families for a special holiday tradition in Niagara Falls and in Niagara Parks. There are so many safe ways to explore the Festival this year and we look forward to creating special memories for everyone this season,” said David Adames, CEO of the Niagara Parks Commission.

The OPG Winter Festival of Lights is managed by Niagara Falls Tourism and supported by funding from the Tourism Partnership of Niagara and the Government of Ontario. Host locations for the illumination displays include Niagara Parks, Lundy’s Lane BIA, Fallsview BIA, Victoria Centre BIA, and Downtown Niagara Falls BIA.
