Niagara Food Festival Details Announced

At the Niagara Food Festival, there’s a tried and true recipe that makes for a great party. It takes one part eager food vendors, two parts exciting mainstage entertainment, a handful of local wineries, breweries and distilleries, a pinch of chefs doing live cooking demonstrations and sprinkle liberally with support from sponsors throughout the region.

But like any good recipe, it’s all about the details, so here’s a taste of what’s to come as the Peninsula’s Tastiest Party returns to Welland’s historic downtown core September 11, 12 and 13th.

Concerts on the Canal Series Announced

“The community cried out to let Welland have the stage,” said Stephanie Hicks, the Downtown BIA’s business development officer.

The city answered.

Welland’s business improvement areas teamed up Thursday afternoon to announce the line up of entertainers that will perform on the Merritt Park Amphitheatre this summer in the new Concerts on the Canal – a series of six free concerts, primarily focusing on local talent.

“This is a perfect opportunity for people who are from Welland, to highlight them,” said Hicks, who led efforts to organize the concert series for the North Welland and Downtown BIAs, that were awarded $30,000 in city funding to organize a series of free community concerts to replace the IlluminAqua concert series.
