Starting this Friday, the Niagara Icewine festival is underway. This festival will take place over three weekends in January, from January 11th-27th. Even though it feels more like spring weather here in the Toronto area, get ready for some winter themed fun. The Niagara region will also transform into a wintry wonderland to celebrate Ontario Icewine. 

Niagara Icewine Events

The 2019 Niagara Icewine Festival goes all out. They have unique wine and food pairings from over 40 wineries. Plus, they have a glammed up Niagara Icewine Gala, and outdoor street festivals. The Niagara Icewine Festival Gala at Fallsview Casino Resort takes place on January 11. It is an evening filled with luxury where you can dance the night away at this all-inclusive evening of wine, and exceptional culinary eats from Niagara. In addition, the theme of this event is “Northern Lights.” That has to be the most Canadian / fun theme for all.
