What’s Open On Clifton Hill For Winter Holidays


Reading Time:  8 minutes -

The Clifton Hill promenade is a major facet of the Niagara Falls Tourism experience this upcoming season. Though most people have always considered our street a Summer destination, Winter can be just as captivating with many exciting indoor venues to choose from. We like to think of ourselves as a “year round” destination with many inside activities to keep you warm and cozy. 

While experiencing Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, these options should be at the top of your mind for the Holiday Season. We encourage that visitors reference the most current COVID-19 regulations, individual business websites and social media accounts for more details, as circumstances can shift without warning.

Effective October 25th, 2021 the government of Ontario released A Plan to Safely Reopen Ontario and Manage COVID-19 for the Long-Term.

This plan outlines Ontario’s cautious and gradual approach to lifting remaining public health and workplace safety measures by March 2022. It will be guided by the ongoing assessment of key public health and health care indicators and supported by local or regional tailored responses to COVID-19.

Effective October 25, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., capacity limits have been lifted in the vast majority of settings where proof of vaccination is required, such as:

  • restaurants, bars, and other food or drink establishments
  • indoor areas of sports and recreational facilities such as gyms and where personal physical fitness trainers provide instruction
  • casinos, bingo halls, and other gaming establishments
  • indoor meeting and event spaces

Limits will also be lifted in certain outdoor settings.

The government will also allow other settings to lift capacity limits and physical distancing requirements if they choose to require proof of vaccination, including:

  • indoor areas of museums, galleries, aquariums, zoos, science centres, landmarks, historic sites, botanical gardens and similar attractions
  • indoor areas of amusement parks
  • indoor areas of fairs, rural exhibitions, festivals
  • indoor tour and guide services

Proof of Vaccination

As of September 22, 2021, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (two doses, plus 14 days) with photo ID is required to access the certain public settings and facilities, click here for full details.

Ontario also intends to allow for greater capacity at organized public events such as Remembrance Day ceremonies and Santa Claus parades with more details coming in the near future.
