The five-minute lighting display will play through three times on the half hour, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each evening, with additional displays at 8:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Both the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls will be illuminated.

2020 NIAGARA FALLS ILLUMINATION SCHEDULE

Every evening beginning at dusk, Niagara Falls is illuminated in an array of colors. Recently, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board launched an ambitious project to replace Xenon lights with new LED technology, increasing both the display’s brightness and energy efficiency. Please note, all illumination times are approximate and subject to change according to light conditions.
