Niagara Falls Fireworks & Illumination Schedule

At night, see Niagara Falls come alive with a colorful illumination display year-round, and seasonal fireworks.

2022 NIAGARA FALLS FIREWORKS SCHEDULE

Beginning Friday, May 20 until Monday, October 10, the 2022 Niagara Falls fireworks series begins nightly at 10 p.m. With a total of 144 consecutive displays scheduled, there are plenty of opportunities to witness this spectacular show. The Niagara Falls fireworks can be viewed at Niagara Falls State Park from many vantage points, like Prospect Point, Luna Island, and Terrapin Point. All fireworks displays are subject to weather conditions.

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.

2022 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.
