Welcome to Niagara Place!

August 7-21, 2022 – Discover what makes Niagara and Ontario so special!

Niagara Place

As Niagara 2022’s premier festival site, Niagara Place will be one of the most exciting and active locations of the 2022 Canada Summer Games — and best of all, admission to this football-field-sized venue will be free of charge for everyone! Come experience the region’s culture and history through daily programming that will feature local talent, arts and cultural performances, among other experiences.

Scheduled every day from August 7-21 2022, Niagara Place will be located on the grounds of the newly-built Canada Games Park (CGP), and act as an interactive outdoor festival site for visitors of the Games to take in live music, art exhibits, and elements of Niagara’s culinary scene. Niagara Place will also have activation spaces for Indigenous and Francophone communities, providing opportunities for guests to sample food, music, dance and language from various groups that call this community home. 

Niagara Place will be operational rain or shine for the two-week duration of the 2022 Canada Summer Games.

Culinary and Beverage / Good Things Grow in Ontario

Niagara Place will spotlight food and beverage from the unique province that we call home, including from some of the Niagara Region’s top wineries, breweries and restaurants.

Home to the largest wine producing area in Canada, Niagara is privy to a wide variety of not only winemakers, but also spirit distilleries and craft breweries. Given its large economic impact in Ontario, the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games are eager to reveal to its visitors the variety of homegrown beverages for their sampling, purchase, and enjoyment.

Additionally, the soil that produces our world-renowned grapes also grows some of our province’s best food. With the Games being held in the peak of the summer growing season, Niagara Place will have the opportunity to share some of the best cuisine from our local/emerging culinary scene.

See the Stage & Experience the Games

The main stage entertainment area is where local talent and musicians will perform live!

This space will be supported by a massive screen that will allow visitors of Niagara Place to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Games’ live sporting competitions, when it isn’t in use for the entertainment — ultimately providing guests with the opportunity to experience all of the festival’s live performances, while occasionally taking in highlights from the 2022 Canada Games.

Additionally, Niagara Place will also feature an on-location broadcast desk that will act as the home of Niagara 2022’s official highlight show. Scheduled to be active every day of the Games, this desk will showcase interviews, features, and allow viewers to relive some of the best moments from the 28th edition of the Canada Games.

Pride Celebration

On August 17, Niagara Place will host a Pride Celebration, bringing participants, spectators, volunteers and Niagara residents together to take in various activations that celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and two-spirit (LGBTQI2S) social and self acceptance, achievements, legal rights, and pride.
