The Vintage Harvest Party of the Year

It’s the last weekend of the Niagara Wine Festival, so from September 24th to 26th, raise a glass and celebrate 59 years of a Vintage Harvest! Niagara transforms into a wine lover’s wonderland this weekend, featuring winery tours and tastings, concerts, Niagara cuisine, wine seminars, live entertainment, and one of Canada’s largest street parades.
 
Enjoy food, wine and live entertainment in St. Catharines’ historic Montebello Park, the hub of the harvest celebration. Experience VQA wines from over 35 wineries as you sip and savour the sounds of Canada’s best live music on the WestJet Centre Stage, featuring fan-favourites such as Slider, The Caverners and Nik and the Nice Guys.
 
Enjoy the colour and the pageantry of one of North America’s foremost street parades! Join the community and show off your green thumb in the streets of downtown St. Catharines for the 59th annual SmartCentres/Retrocom Grande Parade, themed ‘How Green It Is’. The Parade hosts an outstanding procession of marching bands, drum corps, community groups, majorettes, floats and amazing performances. Attracting thousands of spectators to the streets of downtown St. Catharines each year, this year’s parade will be the biggest celebration of the fall harvest to date.
 
Garnish your visit with a wine seminar and a Discovery Pass tour and tasting, with more than 35 participating wineries throughout Niagara. Each Discovery Pass offers 6 experiences for only $30* each.
