The weekend is here and there is many interesting things happening in Niagara Falls and local region. To help you plan a fun weekend, we’ve compiled a list of all the top events and activities for you to enjoy with while out with friends and family!

Billy Joel is one of the world’s most successful music artists and recognised performers, having sold over 150 million records. Joel’s songs have served as personal and cultural touchstones for millions of people throughout the years, echoing his own desire of producing songs that “meant something within the moment in which I lived… and beyond that time.”

#2 An Ideal Husband at the Firehall Theatre
When: February 24th to 25th 2023 at 8pm and February 26th at 2pm
An Ideal Husband premiered in London in 1895 at the Haymarket Theatre, with four acts and three intermissions. The Firehall Theatre was able to cut the play down to the length of a Hollywood action film. Oscar Wilde’s plots, subplots, and parodies delight and occasionally amuse theatregoers. While Wilde’s humour and intelligence exposes and extols your vices and virtues, imagine you are a member of the English nobility, seated in that first audience. Wilde mingled with the Upper Class, but he quickly realized he wasn’t one of them and suffered the repercussions. Perception and reality will ultimately conflict in the case of an ideal husband, or any ideal.
#3 Days of Wine, Chocolate & Cheese
When: February 24-26, 2023 (Hours based on participating wineries)
This February, join us for our Chocolate & Cheese Touring Pass Program! Throughout four weekends in February, we invite you to explore and sample at our twenty vineyard sites. You may visit a maximum of eight wineries for tastings in one day to maintain capacity management and reduce crowds and wait times.
#4 Soil Superheros at the Butterfly Conservatory
When: February 24-25, 2023 at 10am-5pm and February 26 at 10am-6pm
AT THE BUTTERFLY CONSERVATORY: AN UNDERGROUND EXHIBITION
Have you ever considered the incredible superheroes at work under your feet? It’s time to meet the main characters, such as Captain Clay, The Mole, and Wonder Worm, and discover how their superpowers not only serve people with food and medicine, but also clean the water we drink and safeguard the environment!
These small-but-mighty figures assist us in answering the question, “What is soil, anyway? “What is the significance?” They also serve as a reminder that human actions, such as farming techniques and what we buy, reuse, and recycle, have a global impact on soil health.
#5 Reflections-Group Exhibit by the NOTL Arts Collective
When: February 24-26, 2023 at 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
“Reflections” is a one-of-a-kind and thought-provoking exhibition that highlights the varied styles and viewpoints of the NOTL Arts Collective’s participants. The term “reflection” has several meanings. In a physical sense, the phrase refers to reflecting light or heat or mirroring or displaying an image. It may also refer to a thinking, idea, or viewpoint generated during meditation or contemplation. The must-see exhibition is on display at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre’s Joyner Gallery from February 1st to March 25th. The show is open to the public.
#6 Tool of Tools Niagara at Niagara Falls History Museum
When: February 24-26, 2023 at 10 AM to 5 PM
This show celebrates Niagara’s community, culture, and connection by drawing inspiration from many interactions and movements in our daily lives.
The collection reflects on the most commonly symbolic portion of not just the human body but of human relationship, creating a venue for honest dialogues. Our acts, gestures, movements, and relationships remind us of the rich and varied significance of our hands.
“An artist is one who works with his hands, his intellect, and his heart.”
