From glistening lights to shopping activities, here’s our top holiday events list to get you in the festive spirit in Niagara Falls USA!
Fatima Shrine Festival of Lights
November 21, 2020 to January 3, 2021
Every year from Thanksgiving to the Epiphany (January 6) the quaint town of Lewiston glows for its Fatima Shrine Festival of Lights. The magically ambient event features a labyrinth of glowing displays, all designed by the shrine’s rector and created by the shrine’s maintenance team. After taking a walk through its twinkling exhibits, climb to the top of the Basilica — decorated with a life-size nativity scene and festooned in Christmas foliage.
Jingle Falls USA
December 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020
Although Jingle Falls USA may not look like year's past, there are still plenty of socially-distant holiday activities and shopping opportunities during the month of December in downtown Niagara Falls, NY. View the full list of activities and events here.
Village of Lewiston Christmas Walk
December 4 - 6, 2020
The Village of Lewiston Christmas Walk takes place in this charming historic town just north of the Falls. The event is a cozy throwback to Christmas of yore, with beautiful storefronts and window displays, photo opportunities at the Lewiston wreath, and more. Reservations must be made online to visit with Santa (beginning November 30).
Castle by Candlelight
December 12, 2020
Traverse an 18th century fortress festooned in all it's holiday glory this winter season.
