Spend your evening in the Icewine Village in Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Heritage District. This picturesque area of town will be transformed by the dimming of its lights and the raising of glasses. Witness the region’s finest icewine connoisseurs, as they mix up deliciously creative cocktails using the best ingredients the area has to offer.

You’ll certainly be amazed by the participants’ talents and flair for making icewine even cooler than the name implies, but we’re pretty sure you won’t find the 30-foot bar, made entirely of ice, too shabby either! This is a vibrant event that brings together a great crowd of people with high energy and a discerning taste for elevated drinks.
