2019 Summer Fireworks Season
The Falls Fireworks Series returns to Niagara Parks for its 26th year!
With 110+ displays, including daily fireworks throughout the summer, there’s no better time to plan a night out in Niagara Parks.
It all kicks off May 17, 2019 in Queen Victoria Park, in front of the American Falls and Canadian Horseshoe Falls. All shows begin promptly at 10 p.m.
Note: Winter fireworks displays begin at 9 p.m. Display on November 16 is at 8 p.m. Displays on December 31 are at 9 p.m. and midnight.
Fireworks displays continue rain or shine but may be affected by prevailing winds. Wind speed and direction are tested throughout the day, and any schedule changes are announced as soon as possible. Ask a Niagara Parks staff member or call 1.877.642.7275 for the latest fireworks schedule information.
Where can I get the best view?
The fireworks are set off from within the Niagara Gorge, between the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls. You'll get the best view from right in Queen Victoria Park. If you're outdoors, that's anywhere in the main grassy area or along the parapet wall. But we're partial to standing right at the water's edge at Journey Behind the Falls or on the terrace at Queen Victoria Place Restaurant.
Where do I park for the fireworks?
There are many parking lots throughout Niagara Parks, but the closest include Queen Victoria Place Restaurant (limited spots) and our main lot, Falls Parking, directly across from Table Rock Centre.
Is there transportation available?
The WEGO green line runs along the Niagara Parkway, meeting all other lines at Table Rock Centre. Access is included with your Adventure or Wonder Pass. You can also reach Niagara Parks quickly from the Fallsview tourist area with the Falls Incline Railway.
Are the fireworks free?
It's always free to experience the Falls Fireworks series in Niagara Parks, but you may be interested in exclusive experiences! Night Lights at Journey Behind the Falls offers exclusive access to the lower deck during the fireworks show, or book a dinner reservation at Queen Victoria Place Restaurant on the outdoor terrace for an unforgettable panoramic view.
How do I know if a show is cancelled?
Niagara Parks makes its best effort to ensure all displays go off as planned, but safety comes first. In the event of strong winds that would push the fireworks off course, a show may be cancelled. Call 1.877.642.7275 to check for an automated message about fireworks cancellations, or ask a Niagara Parks staff member. We also post notices on Facebook and Twitter as soon as we know.
