2021 NIAGARA FALLS FIREWORKS SCHEDULE

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, Niagara Falls fireworks performances are canceled for 2021.

NEW! INSPIRED BY NATURE ILLUMINATION DISPLAY

A new nightly illumination display, "Inspired by Nature," will showcase colors and movements found in nature, including sunrise, aurora borealis, rainbow and sunset; this is part of the regular nightly illumination of the Falls. The five-minute lighting display will play three times on the half hour, beginning at 9:30 each evening, with additional displays at 10:30, 11:30, and 12:30 a.m.

2021 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.
