Niagara Summer Festivals

Springlicious is ready to rock Downtown Niagara Falls!

Springlicious is the #1 festival in Niagara Falls that celebrates our city and Downtown core. It’s back again for another season from Friday, May 29th to Sunday, May 31st 2015. In case you have never been, it is a three-day long festival that livens up our historic Queen Street in Niagara Falls into a family friendly event full of culinary delights, amazing live Canadian entertainment, vendors, artists, amusements and other local talent. Last year alone, over 30,000 people visited this event — making it one of the most exciting things to do in the Spring in Niagara Falls!

Springlicious is free for the public to attend and is a continuously growing Niagara Falls event, now in its 9th season. Locals and tourists alike will flock to this event, in which Queen Street will close the street off to traffic and open it up to spectators of every age for the festival. Vendors line the street, and local wineries, micro-breweries and food trucks feature their products for sale, ready to fill your bellies with delectable treats! There is entertainment for everyone and the whole street echoes with the sounds of live bands, art lovers with their galleries and displays showcasing their talents, and a number of visual treats and entertaining shows for the kids to partake in.

Here’s a quick video that I took during the day at last year’s Springlicious 2014 event:

This year’s entertainment line-up will be sure to bring in the crowd with Canada’s own, 54-40 ready to rock Niagara Falls on Saturday, May 30th, at 9:00 pm.

Here’s 54-40 “Go Blind”:

Additional Entertainment:

New this year, there will be a section specifically for buskers, and an outdoor puzzle hunt along the street created by The Escape Room.

Also returning will be a band competition hosted by 97.7 HTZ-FM, the School-a-Palooza talent competition among the city’s local high schools.

As always, Queen Street will be lined up with delicious food vendors and plenty of merchandise/artisan vendors for the three days.

In addition to the main stage near city hall, there will be a stage set up near Crysler Ave. and another at Taps Brewery, with live performances on all 3 stages throughout the entire weekend.

“Magical Midways Carnival” will set up games and rides for the whole family to enjoy!
