Things To Do at the Niagara Falls Christmas Market

Things To Do at the Niagara Falls Christmas Market

The Niagara Falls Christmas Market is happening on weekends from November 13th ‑ December 19th! The market is totally free to attend and there are tons of activities to take part in, so we’re here to help you plan your visit!

Glow Swings

Head to the parkette beside Valley Way to experience these fun glow‑in‑the‑dark swings! These are fun for both adults and kids, so don’t think you’re too old to enjoy them!

Photos with Santa

On Saturdays from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, you can take photos with Santa! Just bring your phone or camera, get in line, tell Santa what you want for Christmas, and smile!

If you’re lucky, you may even spot the Grinch while you’re at the Christmas Market! Rumour has it he came all the way from Mount Crumpit to be here!

Shop From Vendors

Just like the classic European Christmas markets, you’ll see tons of decorated wooden cabins on the streets, where vendors are selling their unique goods! Picks & Giggles has arranged for a variety of different vendors each weekend! Don’t forget about the local shops on the street as well! Who are you shopping for this Christmas?

Dine at Local Restaurants

Need a break from the cold and a bite to eat? Downtown Niagara Falls has a variety of restaurants to choose from. Choose between cute cafés, bar-style restaurants, cultural restaurants, all‑day breakfast spots, and more!


The Christmas Market has the cutest photo‑ops to check out with your friends and family! These are definitely IG or Christmas card worthy. The “selfie wall” in this photo is located at 4605 Queen St. outside of the BIA office! You’ll have to visit to find others such as light-up moose, giant presents, Santa’s sleigh and more.

Fire Pits at Ronnie Don’s

If you get chilly, head to the patio at Ronnie Don’s Ice Cream, where you can sit by a fire pit and drink hot chocolate!

Catch a Free Concert

The Niagara Falls Christmas Market even has live music on select weekends! On Saturday, November 20th, everyone had a great time jamming out to their favourite songs performed live by Under The Covers. Stay tuned (no pun intended) for more performance dates, times, and details. Follow our Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date:
