VIP Tickets may be purchased online here.

Directions/Parking for the Fireworks Show in Queen Victoria Park

You may have been to the Falls 100 times, but have you ever arrived at the same time as thousands of other people?  New Years in Niagara Falls has traffic! Please, We can’t stress it enough, expect to arrive and be parked at your destination by 8:30 pm at the latest. Choose a spot close enough to the New Year’s festivities, that is also walking distance from wherever you plan on having dinner, etc. If you plan on seeing the New Year’s Eve fireworks down at Queen Victoria Park,  hopefully you picked a hotel within walking distance to the event. If not, click here and let us help you with a list of nearby hotels complete with a map that pinpoints their location in relation to the park, Niagara Falls, and the attractions that you wish to visit. 

Memorial Day weekend Niagara Falls

A parking lot that is close to the fireworks in the park, Scotiabank Convention Centre, both casinos (Casino Niagara and Fallsview Casino), and all the main Clifton Hill attractions, is just off Victoria Avenue. If you enter the parking lot from here, you will fare much better in getting in quickly — whereas entering at the front (off Clifton Hill) will be difficult depending on your time of arrival. It is large and extends from the rear of the Niagara SkyWheel all the way to the Skylon Tower. You should have no problem finding a parking spot here, and the wait to leave the property afterwards will be far less compared to elsewhere. There are two entrances and three exits.

Please ensure everyone in your party is aware of this location, particularly children attending the event. 

Dress for the Weather – Visitors are advised to dress warmly and in layers to prepare for all types of weather conditions and take extra precautions to protect extremities such as hands, feet and ears.

As always, the presence of security and policing will be on-site to ensure everyone’s safety throughout the night.
