Artpark's Fairy House Festival
June 9. Returning for it's ninth year, the Fairy House Festival transforms the Lower Park at Artpark into a magical and whimsical space. From craft and potion-making to performances by Lewiston Dance—the event will also feature a variety of food trucks and more. The highlight this year is a performance by Ukranian Ethno-Chaos band, DakhaBrakha and “Color Constellation,” a fabric installation by Virginia Melnyk.
Safety Fair & Touch-a-Truck
June 15. This kid-friendly and free event features a variety of exhibitors including many NYPA vehicles used to perform daily tasks at the Niagara Power Project. Once you're finished outdoors, head inside the Niagara Power Vista for an interactive adventure with hands-on experiments and a high-tech virtual ride where you'll feel the transformation from water to hydroelectricity.
June 20–21. Every summer in Niagara County, the neighborhoods of leafy Lewiston bloom into an open-air garden festival. Center Street will be the hub of the events, with everything from nursery booths to gardening master demos. Even if you don’t arrive in Niagara with a green thumb, you’ll leave with one.
June 22. Kick off the summer season with the locals at Localfest! Shop unique items and gifts at the LiveNF Maker's Market, enjoy live music and food.
Free Fishing Days
June 27–28. Gone fishing? On this June weekend, the rich fresh waters of New York state are open to fishing for everyone— with or without a fishing license. For Niagara County, that means dibs on a whole wealth of waterways from the lower Niagara to Lake Ontario. Expect trout, bass and even chinook salmon to be biting.
Niagara Falls Fireworks
June 1–2, 7–9, 14–30. Let your colors burst! In addition to the nightly illumination spectacles over the Falls, June sees an explosion of summer fireworks shows at Niagara Falls too! Whether watching the show from Terrapin Point or the rim of the American Falls at Prospect Point, everywhere in town is a front-row seat!
