Queen Street plans to be filled with street vendors, musicians and great food next weekend! Springlicious will be coming back to heart of downtown Niagara Falls!
A annual event, Springlicious showcases some of the best talent in the area. Musicians typically take center stage, yet food vendors this year promise to be good! The event runs from May 31 to June 2 and runs to 11pm on the Friday and Saturday Night.
The event offers visitors the rare chance to enjoy Niagara Falls outside of Clifton Hill. Queen Street offers small town charm and some of Niagara Fall’s hidden gems. So if you’re in the city that weekend, make sure you don’t miss Springlicious.
Every summer, one of the best free events to enjoy in Niagara Falls is the fireworks display on Friday, Sunday and holiday night beginning at 10pm. It’s always a joy to grab a blanket, lay out on the lawn and watch a spectacular fireworks show.
Beginning May 17, the start of the Victoria Day weekend, Niagara Falls Fireworks will be starting again for the summer. If you’re ending your night, why not make it memorable and affordable with a free fireworks display over the beautiful Niagara Falls.

One of the biggest treasures here in Niagara is the environment. Beautiful vineyards, awe-inspiring wildlife and thunderous waterfalls all combine to showcase the beauty of this region. For these reasons, it’s important that we understand the need for environmental preservation, especially on Earth Day this Saturday, April 20th.
The Marriott Gateway on the Falls understands this and has numerous green initiatives to help the sustainability of the environment.
- Participated in Earth Hour, ensuring nonessential lights were turned off for 1 hour, while also raising awareness for the need to take action on climate change.
- Ensuring appliances are energy efficient and water consuming devices are retro-fitted.
- Established an Environmental Management Committee to implement policies, procedures and strategies towards a greener environment.
These initiatives represent a commitment to environmental sustainability and an understanding of the natural beauty that surrounds the hotel.
This year on Earth Day, come down to Niagara Falls and witness that natural beauty firsthand. Niagara Parks will hosting it’s forth annual Niagara Glen Earth Day hikes, which offered guided tours of the region. So if you want to celebrate the environment on Earth Day, come to one of most beautiful regions in the country and experience nature.
Wine and Craft beer may be taking centre stage at this year’s expo, but that doesn’t mean food wont have a staring role.
This year, just like the last, the Niagara Food and Wine Exp will boast culinary offerings from some of the best chefs in the Niagara region. With the region being a wine hotspot, chefs have been consistently attracted to the area.
AG Inspired cuisine will be offering Oatmeal Stout Pulled Pork and for the more exotic taste buds, Casbah Catering will be bringing Camel meat sliders. Red Canoe Bistro will offering modern spins on Canadian cuisine, while Barbeque enthusiasts can enjoy the meat selection from PigOut Catering.
The event is gearing up to be another wonderful experience of everything great about this wonderful region– wine, craft beer and excellent food.
Niagara Food and Wine Expo runs from April 26 till April 28 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.
It seems like the spring temperatures just don’t want to make their annual climb into the double digits this week. This unfortunately reality, coupled with a rather rainy few days, probably has most of us cooped up inside. That’s why you should come and check out one of North America’s largest indoor water parks! Boasting 16 water slides, a massive indoor wave pool and hot springs, the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark gives everyone in the family something to enjoy.
At The Marriott, we understand the greatness of this attraction so we put together an affordable package that includes tickets to the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark. The package includes accommodations, Fallsview buffet for two, a $25 dollar voucher for dinner at Milestones Bar + Grill and 2 all-day passes to the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark.
The Niagara Food and Wine Expo is one of our favourite events of the year. It marks the beginning of the Niagara region’s growing season and all the excitement that goes along with it. The Expo features local wines, good food, and this year, there will be a wide variety of great craft beer from around the world.
This year the Niagara Region will be making a strong appearance on the beer front with both Silversmith Breweries and the Niagara College teaching brewery. Silversmith is rather new to the Niagara Region beer scene, so this should be exciting to sample their hops concoctions.
Some more brands that will be featured at the Niagara Food and Wine Expo include the Highlander Scottish Pale Ale, which is a medium bodied beer with caramel and fresh fruit aromas, and notes of coffee and chocolate. At the Expo, you can also try Fruli fruit beer, made with fresh strawberries and orange peel. But if fruit isn’t your favourite flavour for beer, then maybe you should try Leifman’s blended Belgian beer, which uses a unique blending process where brewers blend aged craft beer with new, sweet beer to create a deliciously refined brew.
If you’re ready to enjoy not only delicious and unique craft beer, but also international wines and delicious culinary creations, then mark your calendars for April 26th - 28th to join us at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ont.
