Spring Events In Niagara on the Lake

Spring events at Niagara on the Lake encourage visitors to gear up for a summer filled with music, epic theatre, and delicious food.

The Shaw Festival – Dress Rehearsals

Join the friends of the Shaw Festival for a night of heroism and tragedy at the dress rehearsal of Bernard Shaw’s classic play “St. Joan.” Biographer Michael Holroyd described the piece as “a tragedy without villains.” It’s a thought-provoking work based on the trials of Joan of Arc as interpreted through the eyes of one of the 20th century’s greatest playwrights.

When: April 30, 2017
Where: The Festival Theatre
Time: 12:00 p.m.

Foodies’ Delight

Few things are better than steaks served with a good glass of crisp wine, except for maybe steak and wine served against a backdrop of grape blossoms. And that’s just what you and your closest friends will experience if you take in the Sip & Sizzle events at the Wineries in Niagara on the Lake.

When: Sundays in May
Where: Various wineries throughout the area
Time: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cost: $45.00 per person. (Designated drivers can get a $25.00 touring pass for food and non-alcoholic drinks.)

On a High Note

In the early part of May, the gentle sounds of music will float once again on the lake’s spring breezes when the Bravo Niagara! Festival of the Arts comes to us once again.

This annual event celebrates all the best that Niagara on the Lake has to offer…delicious local wines, world-class food, and music concerts set in intimate venues around the area.

Events for the festival happen throughout the spring and summer. However, on Saturday, May 6, 2017, there is a day of cool things to see and do.

Catch “Keep on Keepin’ On,” a documentary film about 23-year-old piano prodigy, Justin Kauflin. Kauflin, who is blind, received an invite into a elite jazz competition. But Kauflin suffers from severe stage fright. The film follows Kauflin and his mentor/ teacher Clark Terry as the two move through musical and health challenges. It’s a must-see for fans of music and documentaries alike!

The film is followed by a concert later inthe evening. It features Kauflin and Alfredo Rodriguez on a double bill. (It’s presented by Quincy Jones.)

When: May 6, 2017
Where: Stratus Vineyards
Time: 3:00 to 5:00 (documentary), 8:00 to 10:00 (Concert)
Cost: $10.00 to $15.00 for the documentary, $30.00 – $89.00 for the concert
