About the Pop-up Dinner Series

This exclusive series of exciting culinary events features flavours of the Niagara River Corridor, as prepared by our talented Niagara Parks Culinary team.

Set in unique locations up and down our extraordinary Niagara Parkway, your meal will also include fascinating speakers and illuminating stories, presented by our Niagara Parks Heritage team.

Niagara Parks Pop-up Dinners are licensed, all-inclusive events.

There’s no place like home

Niagara Parks is committed to sourcing its ingredients from right here at home. That’s why all five Niagara Parks restaurants are Feast On certified: a movement for restaurants who believe local food matters. Supporting Ontario’s hard-working growers, producers and craftspeople builds our local food identity, enhances the local community, and limits environmental impacts.

Niagara Parks chefs take this to heart, and the 2018 Pop-up Dinner Series celebrates local artisans like Brimstone Brewery in Fort Erie, Queen’s Pasta in Toronto, Slegers Greens in Strathroy, and many more.

At each Pop-up Dinner, our chefs and presenters will demonstrate why locally sourced food is such an important part of the Niagara Parks story. And it helps that it tastes better, too!

A river runs through us

Niagara Parks extends for 56 kilometres along the length of the Niagara River, from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie. For centuries, people from around the world have been drawn to the shores of the Niagara River to witness its grandeur firsthand.

Along that stretch, there’s no shortage of unique places to explore. Our Pop-up Dinner series is all about highlighting the natural surroundings, the culture and the history of these incredible locations, and demonstrating the abundance of culinary and artisanal talent in the region.

At each event, you’ll hear from local historians, craftspeople and, of course, Niagara Parks chefs, about these sites along the Niagara River, the local ingredients featured in our creations, and how we’re helping to shape the Niagara culinary story.
